Dental Fillings Shore Up Teeth Against Decay

How fillings from your dentists in North Charleston, South Carolina can save your smile

Bright White SmileAre you having trouble eating because of damaged teeth? If so, it’s time to shore up your teeth against decay. Today’s dental fillings provide both strength and beauty and can improve and enhance your smile. The dentists at North Rivers Dental Associates in North Charleston, South Carolina want to tell you about your options for fillings and how they will give you a great smile.

Dental filling materials have changed a lot in the last few years. In the past, you could only choose less-than-attractive metal. Today, you can choose a filling material known as composite, that will restore the strength of your teeth, and enhance the way your smile looks.

Composite is a unique liquid resin material that can be matched to the color of your teeth, making the filling virtually invisible. Your dentist will place the liquid composite and sculpt it to match the normal contours of your teeth. The liquid composite is then hardened with a high-tech ultraviolet light.

Composite provides a strong support which holds your tooth together. That’s because the composite is chemically and structurally bonded to your tooth surface using a bonding cement. Composite fillings are tooth-colored, so you know that they will blend with your smile, instead of detracting from it.

Let fillings help shore up your teeth against decay. To find out more about dental fillings and what they can do to protect and enhance your smile, call the dentists at North Rivers Dental Associates in North Charleston, South Carolina today!
