Will my fillings be visible?
Your excellent oral health is important, but you also need to feel confident about your appearance. At Dental Care at Moon Valley, we place only esthetic tooth-colored fillings that we match to the shade of your teeth for a virtually invisible filling.
Tooth-colored fillings are a composite (mixture) of plastic and glass particles that closely mimic the translucent appearance of dental enamel. We start by removing the decayed portion of your tooth. Next, a bonding agent is applied to the prepared area. This allows the filling material that will be added to bond directly to the tooth’s surface. The result is a repair that preserves tooth structure and blends seamlessly with your smile.
In fact, composite fillings are so natural-looking that we can use them for a cosmetic procedure called dental bonding. Using the material, Dr. Chad Hines builds up portions of a tooth to fix chipped or cracked teeth, even out the spacing between teeth, or completely alter the shape of a tooth to improve its appearance.
Nearly all the services we offer not only improve your oral health, but also enhance your appearance. If you would like to learn more about the advantage of choosing tooth-colored fillings at our Phoenix dental office, please call us today!
