How White Fillings Improve Your Smile

Tooth-Colored Fillings in Winston-SalemIt is an unfortunate fact of life that we get cavities in our teeth. When a tooth is compromised by decay, a filling is needed to restore it to its previous condition. At Winston-Salem Dental Group we offer white fillings that blend in easily with the rest of your teeth.

If you have old silver amalgam fillings, we can replace them with white fillings. White fillings are made out of a strong composite resin. Many of our cosmetic dentistry patients have replaced their old metal fillings with fillings matched to their teeth. You can improve your smile instantly by getting rid of the metal.

While white fillings have an obvious cosmetic benefit, there are other reasons for considering them. Although traditional metal (amalgam) fillilngs still have the approval of the Food and Drug Administration, many people are concened that they are not healthy.

If you would like to improve your smile by replacing your old fillings with white fillings, call us at Winston-Salem Dental Group. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!

Say Goodbye To Old Amalgam Fillings

white fillings Winston-Salem

This post from Winston-Salem Dental Group is about white fillings as an alternagive to those unsightly silver fillings.

Can you remember what your teeth looked like before you had your first cavity? When you opened your mouth to laugh or yawn, people with you could see only pearly white molar surfaces.

If you are like many, you started developing cavities fairly young and they were repaired with silver amalgam fillings – the standard procedure at the time. As the years went by, two fillings became three. Then three fillings may have become four. Now when you open wide—others see a mouthful of metal.

Fortunately, people with silver amalgam fillings can regain the smile of their youth. The replacement of silver fillings with composite tooth-colored fillings is a relatively inexpensive cosmetic dental procedure that can transform a smile as dramatically as more extensive cosmetic dental treatment.

Composite fillings are fabricated with a mixture of glass or quartz and resin which results in a natural tooth-colored material. They are very strong when bonded to the tooth with adhesive.

Hopefully, you don’t have a new cavity. But if you do, you can start off with a white composite filling. In addition to the cosmetic advantages over silver, the preparation requires the removal of less healthy tooth structure.

At Winston-Salem Dental Group, white fillings are among the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Is Perfect Possible?

Rural Hall Cosmetic DentistryAre you considering a smile makeover? Are you skeptical of promises of a “perfect smile” or a “celebrity smile?” Let’s talk about the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures at Winston-Salem Dental Group, and the results that can be expected.

Composite Veneers
The application of porcelain veneers at Winston-Salem Dental Group can remedy numerous aesthetic dental troubles and is usually a better solution than dental bonding.

Veneers can fix chips, cracks, minor tooth misalignment, tooth discoloration, unattractive tooth shape, and disproportionate tooth size. Can a porcelain veneer create a perfect tooth? While a veneer cannot fix a decayed tooth, it can turn an unattractive tooth into an aesthetically perfect tooth.

Dental Implants
Dental implants have been hailed as one of the great advancements in dentistry. Implants are titanium posts surgically implanted into your jaw, where the root of the natural tooth used to be. An artificial tooth goes on top of the post.

Once the procedure is finished, dental implants look and function like natural teeth. They also help to prevent bone recession in the jaw.

Tooth-Colored Fillings
Would you like to turn back the clock to your pre-filling smile? It is possible with white fillings at Winston-Salem Dental Group. To get an idea of how the inside of your mouth would look without unattractive metal amalgam fillings, have someone without any fillings open their mouth. Do you remember when your mouth looked like that?

These are just a few of the cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Winston-Salem Dental Group. They create unforgettable smiles for our patients. Call us today!
