This preventive focus allows dentists to diagnose and treat oral health issues at the earliest possible stage meaning more people than ever before are able to keep their natural teeth for a lifetime. At Aspen Dental Care, Dr. Shiloh Lindsey recommends twice annual dental checkups and cleanings in order for patients to achieve and maintain the optimal level of oral health, and protect their smiles from more severe dental damage down the line.

It’s important to make sure that any damage or decay to your teeth is treated right away to ensure the continued health of your smile. With all of the options available in dentistry today, your dentist can now restore your smile seamlessly with tooth-colored fillings.
Tooth-colored fillings use composite resins and allow your dentist to match the color of your teeth. This will make it virtually impossible for anyone to tell that you had any work done to your smile. Not only is the color great, but they’re also better for your health than traditional amalgam fillings.
The resin will create a firm bond with your tooth, which will also help to insulate your tooth against changes in temperature. With proper care, your restoration will last from seven to ten years. Tooth-colored fillings are a great way to treat decay while maintaining the appearance of your smile.
If you have a tooth that has a cavity or decay that needs repair, tooth-colored fillings are a great way to improve your smile. They also allow you to maintain more of your natural tooth structure, which helps to better maintain smile health. Give your dentist a call today to learn more or schedule your appointment.
