One of our most common dental treatments is applying tooth-colored fillings to repair teeth with minor damage or decay. Fillings are most often used to restore teeth that have been damaged by cavities, which are comprised of small holes or voids in an individual’s teeth. Cavities are incredibly common, and nearly every person will require a filling at some point during their life. However, when left untreated, a cavity can be used by food particles and bacteria to enter the inner portion of a tooth. With this in mind, having a cavity repaired with a dental filling as soon as possible is extremely important.
The experts at Aqua Dental Loft use tooth-colored fillings that are metal-free and look remarkably natural. Our tooth-colored fillings consist of a combination of quartz and glass fillers housed in a resin medium. These fillings are highly resistant to fractures, and they leave teeth durable and sturdy. Additionally, they are not prone to leaking, and they will not expose the patient to any dangerous metals like traditional silver fillings. Patients who have received silver fillings in the past can also have these harmful materials removed from their teeth and replaced with an extremely safe tooth-colored filling.
