Will anyone notice I have a dental filling?
If you have a cavity in a tooth that shows when you smile, Dr. Buxton would recommend filling the tooth with a material that looks very close in appearance to natural dental enamel.
You may hear these types of fillings referred to as dental composites, composite fillings, or tooth-colored fillings. This material looks natural because it is a blend of glass and resin particles that reflect light similarly to tooth enamel. Dr. Buxton further customizes your tooth filling to match the shade of surrounding teeth.
The way we bond the material to your tooth, combined with its natural appearance, results in a filling that blends seamlessly with your smile. Tooth-colored dental fillings placed at our Bangor, ME dental office are durable and can last between five and seven years.
Since composite dental fillings enhance your smile, we can also use the material to correct minor cosmetic flaws like chipped or broken teeth, uneven gaps, and spaces between teeth, and more.
If you have a cavity and need a dental filling placed at our Bangor dental office, please call to arrange an appointment with Dr. Buxton. You can be confident that we will provide you with results that look so natural even you may not be able to detect it!
