Even with good brushing habits, regular flossing, and routine visits, you may develop a cavity. We will need to repair the decayed area with a filling. Because Dr. Alani wants to preserve the health and appearance of your smile, we only use tooth-colored fillings.
Advantages to White Fillings
Dr. Alani restores cavities and replaces old amalgam fillings with tooth-colored fillings because they:
- Blend with the natural shading of the tooth
- Contain no metal or mercury
- Require less removal of healthy tooth structure
- Revive strength for the tooth
To place your new filling, Dr. Alani will prepare the tooth by removing decay. She will then thoroughly clean the affected area, keeping you comfortable throughout the procedure. During the final step, Dr. Alani will precisely place, shape, and polish the tooth-colored filling, which will re-establish the form and function of your tooth.
