Dr. Brusky prefers to use composite, tooth colored fillings to repair teeth that may have been affected by cracks, fissures or dental decay. Dr. Brusky will first remove the decayed portion of the tooth; then he will apply the composite filling to rebuild the tooth’s structure.
The Two Types of Dental Fillings
Composite fillings and silver amalgam fillings happen to be the most popular types of dental fillings used today, and each comes with unique advantages and disadvantages.
Since composite fillings are colored like natural teeth, they can be more closely matched to existing teeth. They can be used in the front or back teeth, the visible and not-so-visible. Many patients prefer these advantages over silver fillings.
It’s worth noting that composite fillings may need to be replaced over time. However, the material is extremely durable and will last for years with regular at-home dental care and regular dental checkups, providing you with a beautiful smile well into the future.
How Much Do Composite Fillings Cost?
Composite fillings can be somewhat costly, but they can help to strengthen and beautify your teeth. They can also drastically improve your life. Dr. Brusky never wants you to forgo proper dental treatment simply due to the cost. Talk to Dr. Brusky and his friendly staff at your next dental appointment about composite fillings.
