At Nevada Dental Esthetics, Dr. Jorge Paez and his team provide Las Vegas, NV, area patients with a comprehensive array of effective dental services, including tooth-colored fillings. If you have recently been diagnosed with cavities or have old silver amalgam fillings that are showing signs of wear and tear, you may be looking for a more attractive solution to your dental needs than traditional metal fillings. Las Vegas dentist Dr. Jorge Paez is pleased to offer this service to his valued patients who prefer not to have their teeth compromised by metallic substances in the smile.
What Are Tooth-colored Fillings?
Tooth-colored fillings are fillings fabricated from a composite resin material. They are used in areas where cavities have formed, small holes in the natural tooth enamel that can become larger and deeper. If cavities are left untreated, they can become more substantial and have the ability to cause serious infection inside of the tooth. This may require treatments such as root canal therapy to resolve, which can be invasive and expensive. Instead, using tooth-colored fillings to address cavities can stop their growth and reduce the risk of more extensive issues later on.
Are Tooth-colored Fillings Right for Me?
All patients are proper candidates for tooth-colored fillings. The material is biocompatible with the smile, unlike silver amalgam filings used by other dentists. In fact, many patients come to our office to have their old amalgam fillings removed and replaced with this alternative solution that is safer and more aesthetic.
How Do I Care For Tooth-colored Fillings?
Fillings will last several years with proper care. You must speak to our providers to learn about the ways in which you can extend the longevity of their fillings. In most cases, routine oral health visits with the dentist, cleanings with our hygienists, and proper home health care can allow most fillings to last several years before they need to be replaced.
