How tooth-colored fillings from your family dentist in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina can help your smile

If you need a dental filling, you don’t have to put up with unsightly metal fillings. Why not choose a state-of-the-art dental material that Smileactually enhances your smile? Why not choose tooth-colored fillings? Dr. Cynthia Garner at Garner Family Dentistry in Mount Pleasant, SC, offers a full range of dental services including tooth-colored fillings to help your smile.

Tooth-colored fillings offer many benefits. When you choose tooth-colored fillings, you will enjoy:

  • A cosmetically beautiful tooth restoration, because tooth-colored fillings are virtually invisible to people around you; they enhance your smile instead of detracting from it.
  • A strong tooth restoration, because a tooth-colored filling actually bonds with your tooth surface, holding it together.
  • A metal-free tooth restoration, because tooth-colored fillings use a liquid resin material known as composite

The process is easy, too. Your Mount Pleasant, SC, dentist will simply remove any decay and apply an etching material to create small, porous openings for the composite to attach to. Then, a bonding material is applied, which binds the composite to your tooth structure.

The composite is selected by color-matching to your natural teeth. This provides a virtually invisible appearance to your filling. The liquid material is applied and sculpted to match the natural contours of your teeth, and the material is hardened with a blue light. That’s all there is to it!

If you need a dental filling, you owe it to yourself and your smile to choose tooth-colored fillings. To find out more about the benefits of tooth-colored fillings, call (843) 884-6002 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Garner at Garner Family Dentistry in Mount Pleasant, SC, today!
