At every appointment, Dr. Bickford and Dr. Shirley will complete an oral exam to look for signs of the most common oral health problems, among them tooth decay. As with any problem, what starts small can develop into a serious problem. If we find any signs of decay during your visit, we’ll recommend treatment with a filling—and in most cases, a tooth-colored filling.
For a long time, amalgam fillings were the best solution for treating decay. And for some situations, they’re still a very good choice. But today, tooth-colored fillings are the standard for care. Tooth-colored fillings are more supportive of the tooth’s natural structure, making them a more conservative choice. They’re also more discreet. Instead of standing out the way amalgam fillings do, they blend in with your smile, for more natural results.
