Strong, Stain-resistant and long-lasting
It is important to treat cavities before worse dental health problems, such as gum disease, tooth rot, or abscesses, occur. Cavities are caused when bacteria and tooth decay erode teeth, creating damaged enamel that needs to be filled. Common symptoms of cavities include toothaches and tooth sensitivity. Make sure you’re going to the dentist regularly to check on your dental health. Our dentists in Mission Viejo can treat cavities and prevent future problems.
Silver fillings can look dated or can be aesthetically unpleasing. If you want to change them out for white fillings, the team of dentists at New Generation Dentistry is happy to discuss your options with you to accommodate your needs. White fillings are made from a composite resin and will be matched to the color of your natural teeth. If you are worried about the integrity of the filling, it is important to know that white fillings are strong, stain-resistant and will last just as long as an amalgam filling.
