White Fillings – For a Standout Smile!
It’s nice to be noticed – for the right things! Your smile has the potential to make you memorable. But something you probably don’t want others to notice is your dental work, especially if you have dark, metal fillings that show when you speak or laugh.
In Scottsbluff NE, Dr. Gary Cheloha creates standout smiles with white, composite resin fillings. Tinted to match your tooth color, composite resin fillings look natural. No one will notice your fillings – just your beautiful smile.
Dark is Done
While silver (amalgam) fillings are still around today, they’ve fallen out of favor for a variety of reasons. Studies highlight the potential for health issues caused by the mercury in amalgam fillings. We’ve also learned that metal fillings don’t perform as well as first thought. The metal can expand and contract in response to the temperature of foods and beverages. This movement can cause cracks that let bacteria invade. Plus, there’s the aesthetic component: metal fillings just aren’t attractive.
