Alpharetta best dentist
In the past, if you had a cavity, you were stuck getting metal fillings. That was the only option back then. Fortunately, today, you can get your cavities treated without having to deal with metal in your mouth. Your Alpharetta dentist can now repair your cavities with virtually undetectable tooth colored fillings.
Tooth colored fillings are a great alternative to metal fillings for many reasons. They’re more attractive because instead of metal, they’re made from durable plastics called composite resins or porcelain. Because of their color and texture, they’re a lot less noticeable than metal fillings. Composite resins are not only better looking than metal fillings but are also better for your teeth. In order to get a metal filling, your Alpharetta dentist may have to remove healthy parts of your tooth with a drill to create an undercut that locks the filling in place. Modern composite resin tooth colored fillings don’t require the undercuts to remain in place; they physically attach or bond to the natural structure of the tooth. The dentist can apply composite resin directly onto the teeth, sculpt it and then harden it with a special light. These composite tooth restorations are so life-like; no one will even know you have a filling. While metal filling are strong but are very stiff which can stress the teeth. Tooth colored fillings are strong yet flexible so they won’t stress the teeth. They mimic the natural healthy teeth in both color and function. If you need a filling, you should consult a professional dentist like ours at Northbridge Dental to discover what would be the best filling option for you.

It’s the goal of our Alpharetta dentist to prevent cavities in any way possible. This includes not only twice-yearly trips to our office at Northbridge Dental, but also recommending a strong oral hygiene strategy for you at home. Unfortunately, it is rare to go a lifetime with no cavities at all. And when you do have one, you can benefit from what our tooth colored fillings have to offer.
For many years, fillings were all made of metal, typically silver. And while they were strong, they stood out like sore thumbs, especially in front teeth. Furthermore, they put your tooth at greater risk for fractures, because metal expands and contracts with changes in temperature. Composite resins, or just simply composite, is a material that matches your tooth color near perfectly. As a result, it blends in so no one even realizes that you have a filling at all. The advantages don’t end there, however. Composite bonds much better with your teeth than does metal. That means our Alpharetta dentist does not have to do as much drilling. And no one complains about that, especially if you’re someone who finds the sound of the drill off-putting or scary. You also retain more of your natural tooth material in the process. And don’t forget that some amalgam fillings contain mercury. There are serious questions about the health hazards of mercury, so choosing composite makes even more sense. Even if those questions have not been resolved, why risk your health when you do not have to?In fact, if you currently have amalgam fillings still in your mouth and you would like to change them, our Alpharetta dentist can remove them and replace them with the more efficient and more cosmetically pleasing tooth colored composite fillings.
One call to our office will suffice to schedule you for an appointment to get new or replacement tooth colored fillings.
