Because metal isn’t for everyone
If your playlist is full of Metallica, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and Slayer, and you can only hope to one day be as metal as Ozzy, then traditional metal fillings might be right up your alley (all the better for chomping the heads off bats). But if metal isn’t your thing, you’ll be happy to know that your Charlotte dentist, Dr. Michael Berglass at Central Avenue Dental offers tooth colored fillings for a more subtle, more natural, and more stable solution to combat tooth decay.
With advances in modern dentistry, having a cavity filled no longer requires the glaring metal reminder every time you open your mouth. If you’re into more of a natural, alternative kind of vibe, tooth colored fillings can help repair teeth damaged by decay, while blending in seamlessly with your natural smile. No one will ever know you’ve had a filling – except for you and Dr. Berglass, but don’t worry, your secret’s safe with us.
Benefits of tooth colored fillings
Although we do offer both metal fillings and tooth colored fillings at Central Avenue Dental, and the best option for you will depend on several factors including the size and location of the cavity, as well as your bite alignment and force, there are many known benefits of tooth colored fillings versus traditional metal fillings. Benefits include:
- Cosmetics – tooth colored fillings blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth
- Stability – won’t expand and contract with changes in temperature like metal fillings
- Health – trace amounts of mercury found in metal fillings can be toxic to the human body
