Are your old silver dental fillings blemishing your smile? Are you looking for a cosmetically friendly option? Many patients that visit our Bronxville general dentist
, Dr. Todd D. Wortman, are interested in having their old fillings replaced. We are happy to do that for our patients as long as it is safe and effective according to their individual needs. Thanks to advancements in the world of dental technology, we now have dental filling options that are just as effective as traditional fillings, but are improvements in that they are tooth-colored and so they are able to blend in with the rest of the teeth easily.
Firstly, it is helpful to mention why and how dental fillings are used in the first place. Dental fillings are some of the most helpful restorative devices available in the dental world. Perhaps the most common reason that we use dental fillings is to restore a tooth that has suffered from decay. In these cases, the filling replaces the parts of the tooth that have been worn away. A dental filling may also be used if a tooth is cracked, broken, or chipped. Dental fillings can also be used cosmetically if a tooth is misshapen or stained. When it comes to new or replacement fillings, Dr. Wortman often suggests using tooth-colored fillings made out of composite resin material. These materials are durable and long lasting, and are able to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile, making them the filling option of choice for most patients today. If you think you are in need of a dental filling, simply schedule an appointment with our Bronxville general dentist
for a consultation and examination. Dr. Wortman will then be able to evaluate your symptoms and discuss treatment options with you.
