Can I switch my silver fillings to tooth-colored fillings?

Yes, at Palm Family Dentistry, your dentist in Prairieville, LA can replace metal fillings with tooth-colored restorations!

Many patients prefer tooth-colored restorations, and this includes white fillings instead of metal. Fortunately, if you already have silver-colored dental fillings, your Prairieville dentist can help. Dental replacement calls for gently removing your old silver filling and replacing it.

The major reasons people opt for tooth-colored fillings over metal include the desire for a seamless smile or a particular sensitivity to silver.

What Is a Tooth-Colored Filling?

We use fillings to close dental cavities following decay removal. And for decades, silver was the go-to method for sealing off a tooth after therapy. Today, you can opt for a tooth-colored filling instead.

A tooth-colored filling relies on composite resin material to restore your tooth. Following composite resin application, your dentist smooths and polishes. It’s that simple, but it means a nearly invisible finish. Additionally, the material is sturdy, so you can enjoy your favorite foods again without worry.

If you’re considering tooth-colored fillings in Baton Rouge or Prairieville, LA, contact the Palm Family Dentistry team to schedule an exam. We look forward to helping you achieve your best smile.
