Even minor smile imperfections like chips, cracks and tooth decay can keep you from feeling confident in the appearance of your smile. In the past, this was easily corrected with metal amalgam crowns or fillings. However, the resulting appearance was relatively unaesthetic and often increased sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. Drs. Navid and Faranak Rahimpour offers a modern restorative solution at Southern Cross Dental in Colorado Springs, CO. Tooth colored fillings provide patients with a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing restoration that blends in with the natural shade of their tooth.
Tooth colored fillings differ from metal amalgam fillings in that they use a white, composite resin to fill the tooth. This material is not temperature sensitive and it blends in nicely with the rest of your natural smile. Tooth colored fillings are secured to the surface of your tooth with a specialized adhesive gel that bonds quickly and reliability. With a natural appearance and secure fit, tooth colored fillings offer a cosmetically appealing alternative. Tooth colored fillings are an excellent choice for areas of your smile that may be more visible than others. With a tooth colored filling you can restore confidence in the appearance of your smile. Tooth colored fillings also don’t require as much modification of the natural tooth structure when compared to metal amalgam.
Patients that visit Drs. Navid and Faranak Rahimpour leave with a new found confidence in their smile. The dentists use tooth colored fillings to restore cracked and chipped teeth, as well as to replace old metal amalgam fillings with a more aesthetically pleasing and natural looking alternative solution.
