Could having a brighter, consistent smile change the way you feel about yourself? You might be surprised to learn just how much of an emotional, psychological, and social change a whiter smile can foster. If you have silver amalgam fillings, consider replacing them with tooth-colored white fillings to help increase your self-esteem. Make an appointment with Dr. Abbey Lee in Atlanta, GA, by calling the Smiles 4 Grant Park at (404) 328-7177.
For many generations, only metal-based amalgam fillings made of silver, copper, and related materials were used to support and protect teeth after a decayed or damaged area was cleaned and prepared. Although these types of fillings are still used today, they are not the only solutions for children and adults. White fillings have become an attractive, reliable alternative for patients who want immediate, long-lasting restorative dental care.
What are some of the benefits to choosing white fillings over traditional amalgam restorations? Here are a few notable advantages:
Are you having difficulty deciding between white fillings and metal fillings? If you already have metal fillings in your molars at the back of your mouth, you may choose to keep them in place unless they have come loose. However, if a tooth that shows when you smile is more than 50 percent repairable, white fillings may be a better cosmetic choice.
If you are concerned about paying for white fillings instead of metal fillings, discuss your concerns with Dr. Lee. She and her team will help you understand your choices when it comes to financing composite fillings as a patient at Smiles 4 Grant Park.
