Dental Fillings For Tampa, Winter Haven, Spring Hill, Brooksville, & Surrounding Areas
Tooth decay often required cleaning the affected area of a tooth by drilling out the decayed area, rinsing it and filling in what was drilled out with silver/mercury dental fillings. Mercury in and of itself is dangerous, and the silver/mercury filling becomes affected by ordinary wear and tear. Edges can weaken and break, and tooth decay can return in and around the filling. Silver/mercury fillings might split and break or even fall out. That’s when you’ll need to see our emergency dentist.
Just one of our alternatives to silver/mercury dental fillings at Dental Associates of Florida in Tampa are restorative inlays and onlays that match the color of your existing healthy teeth. They’re a great choice for people who want natural looking fillings. Unlike traditional dental fillings, inlays and onlays:
- Can’t be noticed
- Add strength to teeth
- Offer a tighter and better fit in or on the affected tooth
- Are far more cosmetically pleasing than traditional fillings
- They can be used on either front or rear teeth
Other alternatives to silver/mercury dental fillings that match the shade of your teeth have also been developed. We work with those types of dental fillings too.
