Azusa, CA dentist describes the purpose of composite tooth-colored fillings for teeth affected by decay
Patients in the Azusa, CA area who are faced with cavities may worry that the fillings used to restore their smile will look dark and impact the aesthetics of their smile. Luckily, Dr. Brianne Luu understands the importance of a beautiful smile and making sure it is not obvious that dental work has been completed. To this end, she offers composite fillings for teeth, which are tooth-colored and blend in beautifully with the smile.
What are fillings?
Fillings are used to treat areas where cavities, or tooth decay, have formed. Fillings have been used for decades to repair teeth that have been affected by decay. Composite resin bonding is a specialized filling material that Dr. Brianne Luu uses for many reasons. This material is:
- Aesthetically pleasing
- Simple to place
Tooth-colored fillings are popular because of their appearance and safety. During a consultation and examination with Dr. Brianne Luu, patients can find out if they are a good candidate for these or other restorative options available at Gentle Care Dentistry.
Dental fillings can be used to effectively address many types of cavities. However, if the area of decay is large and affects the structure of the natural tooth, patients may need to consider alternative restoration options for their teeth such as dental crowns, which can be placed over the tooth to protect it and give it added strength and durability. Our team of professionals believes in using the most conservative restorative options when possible before recommending more extensive treatments.
