Tooth Colored Fillings Southampton, PA
Dr. Harry L. Habbel uses metal-free, mercury-free white fillings for treating tooth decay. Composite restorations are safer for your smile and appropriate for all ages.
Traditional metal fillings in Southampton, PA are held in place by creating a "cut out" for wedging the material into the tooth. But with a tooth colored filling, the composite bonds naturally to your enamel.
This design makes it so that your white filling is smaller, less invasive, and can be placed anywhere inside your mouth in Southampton. Since tooth colored fillings reduce the amount of enamel that has to be removed during your treatment, they're the best option for treating an area of decay.
Made to Match Your Smile
Composite comes in a variety of different shades. When it's time for your treatment, we'll use a guide to match the material so that it blends right in with your teeth. Once the filling is placed and cured, you shouldn't be able to differentiate it from the tooth structure around it.
If you have a cavity on a front tooth, rest assured Dr. Habbel can repair your smile in a way that also enhances its overall appearance. Even smooth surfaces can be repaired, which isn't an option with metal restorations.
Do You Have a Cavity?
Symptoms of tooth decay can include sensitivity, pain when eating certain foods, rough edges, food packing inside of teeth, and discoloration. However, some cavities are completely asymptomatic. That's why we recommend scheduling a checkup with Harry L. Habbel, DDS at least every six months.
The sooner your cavity is detected, the easier (and more affordable) it is to treat. We screen for demineralized enamel at each checkup, to potentially bypass tooth decay through other preventative care strategies (like fluoride treatments and fluoride.)
