What your dentists in Kennesaw, Marietta, and Woodstock GA want you to know about dental fillings
Dental fillings restore your teeth, creating beautiful, complete teeth and restoring your chewing function. If you have teeth that are broken, you probably are afraid to chew your food, in case your teeth break further. If you have dental decay, it may be painful to chew, affecting your digestion and overall health. Your dentists at 1st Choice Dental Care with offices in Kennesaw, Marietta, and Woodstock GA want to help you discover why dental fillings are important for you.
Dental fillings don’t just restore your dental and physical health; they can also restore the beauty and natural appearance of your smile. Your dentists use the latest dental materials, technologies and procedures to give you fillings that are cosmetically beautiful and strong.
You can choose from a variety of materials for your fillings, depending on your personal preferences and the location of the filling. Your dentists want you to consider:
Metal (amalgam) fillings, if you want a strong, durable, relatively inexpensive filling; metal fillings are typically placed on teeth that aren’t visible when you smile.
Gold fillings, if you want a strong filling with the beautiful color of gold; these fillings are manufactured in a dental laboratory so they require more than one appointment.
Tooth-colored (composite) fillings, if you want a cosmetically beautiful, natural-looking filling; these fillings can be matched to the color of your existing teeth, making them virtually invisible.
Porcelain fillings, if you want a strong, cosmetically beautiful filling; these fillings reflect light, just like your natural teeth, making them a sparkling addition to your smile. Porcelain fillings are also created in a dental laboratory, so they require more than one appointment.
Glass ionomer fillings, if you need a filling placed along the gumline; these fillings are also tooth-colored, giving you a completely natural look.
