Do you have dark colored or silver fillings in your mouth that you want to be replaced or upgraded? Would you rather have a filling that has a similar look and the feel of your natural tooth? Is the thought of having mercury in your mouth concerning?
Do you wonder what the advantages are between tooth colored fillings and traditional silver fillings?
For the daily care of your natural tooth colored fillings, we offer you some precautions and tips. It is advised to avoid chewing hard foods such as raw carrots and ice on the filled teeth just as you would do with your natural teeth. You should contact us immediately if you notice swelling, intense pain or a high bite. You could experience soreness of the gum tissue for a few days following the procedure. Consumption of alcohol frequently may destroy composite fillings, and therefore, it is recommended that you limit your intake for the benefits of your oral health.
Natural-looking white fillings can transform your looks and give your teeth a more natural appearance that will look better than silver fillings. Regardless of whether you have a cavity or would like an existing filling upgraded, you are encouraged to contact your dentist in Abilene TX for an appointment.
