Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings in Lee’s Summit, MO & Shawnee, KS
Restore Your Dental Health With Our Experienced Care
If you have a decayed tooth that needs to be restored, ask our experienced team about our cosmetic tooth-colored dental fillings in Lee’s Summit, MO, and Shawnee, KS. A filling is a common procedure, but our dentists use a resin composite material instead of the traditional metal type. Any surface area where a filling can be noticed is a great location for tooth-colored fillings because we perfectly match the resin composite to the color of your existing teeth.
Our cosmetic fillings are highly durable and resistant to stress when installed in your mouth. Tooth-colored fillings blend with your surrounding teeth and enhance a bright, youthful appearance. No one will even notice they’re there – including you!
How Do You Know When You Need a Dental Filling?
If you suspect that you need a filling, don’t wait until your next routine appointment. Give our office a call if you experience any of the following:
- Toothache or ongoing pain
- Tooth sensitivity
- Lost or broken existing filling
- A dark spot on your tooth
Patients who ignore these signs could end up with a more advanced problem, as bacteria quickly invades an untreated cavity. Contact our office right away, so we can fully restore your tooth’s function as soon as possible.
Brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings are necessary to prevent cavities. Additionally, you should be mindful of consuming sugary beverages and snacks and the effect that they have on your teeth and gums. Excess sugar can feed bad bacteria that remain in your mouth after brushing, flossing, and rinsing. Highly acidic foods, such as orange juice, can break down the protective enamel in your teeth, giving bad bacteria a place to feed on excess sugar.
Certain mouths are prone to cavities regardless of dental hygiene habits and diets. For example, a mouth with crowded teeth often has points of friction between the teeth that lead to incipient dental caries, or signs of potential cavities. If you are someone who is prone to cavities (one or more per year) despite a rigorous dental regimen, we would be happy to discuss proactive steps you can take to decrease your cavity risk level.
