When decay or damage occurs to your tooth enamel, our team at Bristol Dental Clinic will likely recommend a dental filling. Dental fillings are a type of dental restoration used to fill in the space left on your tooth after decay has been removed. Completed in just one visit to our office, dental fillings are ideal for patients looking for an easy, versatile restoration. Dental fillings can be used to restore both the shape of your tooth’s surface and its structural integrity. Drs. Laban and Monica Bontrager offer two different types of dental fillings in Bristol, Florida, white fillings and amalgam fillings.
White fillings, also known as tooth-colored or composite fillings, are made from a plastic mixture that can be matched to the exact color of your tooth enamel. They are favored by patients looking to maintain the beauty of their smile. Amalgam fillings are made from metal and are considered extremely easy to apply and more cost-effective. We will work with you, listening to you goals and concerns, to determine which type of dental filling will suit your smile most.
We would love to share all of the benefits of dental fillings with you and your family. To schedule your appointment with our dentists, call or visit our dental office today. We look forward to hearing from you!
