How fillings from your dentist in Wake Forest, North Carolina can strengthen and enhance your smile

How much do you know about dental fillings? Did you know that they can make your teeth stronger AND make your smile more beautiful? It’s true! Modern dental fillings can enhance your smile.

Dr. Shanean Michelle Anderson of Smile Sculptors in Wake Forest, North Carolina offers a wide range of dental services, including dental fillings to strengthen and enhance your smile.

Fillings are one type of dental restoration used to repair teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay and other causes. There are a few types of dental fillings, including:

  • Conventional metal (amalgam) fillings are the original type of filling. Amalgam fillings are a common type of filling, in use for decades, with a proven track record of durability many years.

  • Tooth-colored (composite) fillings are a more natural-looking, more aesthetically appealing restorative treatment. They may also be a stronger restoration because they bond directly to the tooth surface. Composite fillings blend into your smile.

  • Glass ionomer fillings which are typically placed on root surfaces; the glass ionomer material can be matched to the color of your tooth, resulting in a virtually invisible restorative treatment.

You can also choose fillings that are cast and created in a dental laboratory. Fillings created in a dental laboratory typically require two or more appointments. These fillings include:

  • Gold, which provides excellent strength and durability

  • Porcelain, which is natural-looking and blends into your smile. Porcelain is also stain-resistant, so it will look new for many years.
