Natural-Looking Dental Tooth Fillings in Wichita, KS
At Wichita Family Dental, we offer air abrasion, also called microabrasion. Air abrasion allows us to remove cavities without the use of a drill or anesthetic and it preserves your healthy tooth tissue. It is generally pain-free and quick. It is especially appropriate for children and those with dental anxiety who may fear the sound of the drill or the needle used for anesthetic.
Wichita Family Dental is a mercury-free practice. Tooth-colored restorations, or composite resins, create fillings that are mercury-free, natural and beautiful. They are incredibly strong and durable and can be used on front or back teeth.
Disadvantages of Silver Fillings:
Silver fillings are much weaker than composite fillings. As they age, silver fillings expand, contract, and may even split. They contain 50 percent mercury and they may corrode, leak, and stain your teeth and gums.
Fortunately, your Wichita Family Dental doctor can replace your silver fillings with tooth-colored restorations. Your teeth will be restored to a natural look and feel. They will be stronger and well-protected.
