Whenever someone receives any sort of dental treatment, they tend to like for their results to look as natural as possible. Though some would like to opt for a drastic change in their appearance, there are some who simply wish to look like improved, natural versions of themselves. The same concept can be applied when talking about fillings. Having metal, also known as amalgam, fillings can give your smile an unpleasant aesthetic, making your dental work obvious. Though you may think nothing can be done regarding your metal fillings, Dr. Michael Michel is able to give his patients the natural appearance to their smile that they have been wanting by offering tooth-colored fillings at his Topeka, KS dental office.
Aside from being displeasing to the eye, metal fillings are also unhealthy to your body. Metal fillings contain mercury, a highly toxic element. When left to sit in your smile, the toxins have the potential to enter your blood stream, affecting other areas of your body. Tooth-colored fillings are not only better for your smile, but for your overall health as well.
One of the great things about tooth-colored fillings is the fact that more of your natural tooth structure is able to be saved than with metal fillings. This form of conservative dentistry gives us the ability to not only make your smile look more natural, but it will actually be more natural. Being able to be sturdy against temperature change and breakage, tooth-colored fillings are much stronger than traditional metal fillings. When making your filling, we will be able to make it to where it exactly matches the color of your natural smile, making it blend it seamlessly.
