When you get a tooth cavity, it is important to have it filled ASAP so that the decay does not spread and threaten the entire tooth. “A stitch in time saves nine,” certainly holds true in this case.
Tooth Colored Fillings in Mesquite, TX
Many dentists use silver fillings, also called amalgam fillings, to restore cavities. But studies have shown that these fillings erode over time from normal, daily chewing and release mercury vapor. Mercury is a cancer-causing agent. Additionally, these fillings look unattractive.
At Love 2 Smile Dental, Dr. Divya uses only safe and environment friendly composite fillings with no metal. Composite fillings are tooth-colored and match the color of surrounding tooth. So no one will notice your filling, even if it is revealed when you smile.
Removal of Amalgam and Mercury Fillings
When an amalgam filling becomes very old, Dr. Divya recommends replacing it with the safer composite filling. She uses abundant precaution to safely and quickly remove it through tooth isolation and high-speed suction.
