With tooth fillings, the main purpose of that is to restore a tooth that's been damaged from a cavity or something that has broken. These days, we use more of a, it's called a composite, which is a white-type filler or a tooth-colored filling, which is stronger than the traditional silver-type fillings. If we can repair a tooth with a small cavity or a broken part of the tooth with one that also looks like tooth, it's very hard to distinguish filling from their tooth. They are much more happier with that, plus it keeps them from having a bigger problem by not restoring that tooth.

Enjoy the Beauty of Our Composite Tooth Fillings
Rather than using a mixture of metals, our beautiful fillings use sturdy composite resin, the same material we use for tooth bonding when we’re doing cosmetic dentistry. That means that no matter which tooth you’re having filled, you’re assured of having a great result.
Unlike traditional silver fillings that can draw attention to your mouth when you’re eating, talking, laughing, or singing, composite fillings are tooth-colored. No one even has to know they’re there unless you tell them.
Plus, you don’t have to worry about having mercury or any other kind of metal in your mouth. Composite fillings are made up of tiny particles of natural-looking glass and plastic and pose no health problems at all.
Get a Same-Day Inlay, Onlay, or Crown If Needed
Sometimes a standard tooth filling won’t repair a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed. If that’s the case for you, we can still complete your tooth repair in a single visit using the versatility of our E4D milling system.
Using CAD/CAM technology, we can make a new porcelain inlay or onlay (sometimes referred to as partial crowns) or a complete crown while you wait. The whole process will take only a couple of hours, and you’ll leave our office able to bite and chew with ease again.
If you need Cary tooth fillings that look great, pay Preston Dental Center a visit soon. Call us today at 919-460-0963 to schedule an appointment.
