Natural-Looking Tooth Restorations
Our cosmetic tooth-colored fillings in Fort Mill, SC, are a beautiful option if you need to fix a tooth that has rotted. Dr. Culp performs a standard procedure called a filling, however, instead of the usual metal filling, he utilizes a resin composite material. Because he carefully matches the resin composite to the color of your natural teeth, any place where a filling can be seen is a fantastic candidate for tooth-colored fillings.
When fitted in your mouth, our aesthetic fillings are strong and resistant to stress. Fillings that match your surrounding teeth’s color help you look more vibrant and young. Nobody, including you, will even be aware that they are there!
When Do You Need a Dental Filling?
Don’t wait until your next regular checkup if you think you need a filling. If you encounter any of the following, call our office:
- Toothache or ongoing pain
- Tooth sensitivity
- Lost or broken existing filling
- A dark spot on your tooth
Patients who ignore these symptoms run the risk of developing a more serious issue since bacteria will swiftly infect an untreated cavity. So that we can quickly and completely restore the function of your tooth, contact our clinic right away.
How to Prevent Cavities
Cavities can be avoided with proper brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings on a regular basis. You should also be aware of the impact that consuming sugary foods and drinks have on your teeth and gums. After brushing, flossing, and rinsing your mouth, harmful bacteria may still be present. Extra sugar might feed these bacteria. Orange juice is an example of a highly acidic food that can erode your teeth’s protective enamel, allowing harmful bacteria to feed on sugary foods.
Regardless of nutrition and dental care practices, some mouths are more prone to cavities than others. For instance, crowded teeth frequently create friction spots between them, which can result in early cavities or dental caries. We would be pleased to discuss preventive measures you can take to lower your cavity risk level if you are someone who is prone to cavities (one or more per year) while following a strict dental routine.
