Tooth-Colored Fillings in Philadelphia, PA
Even if you brush and floss every day and take good care of your teeth, you may still get a cavity. At the office of Debra V. Irvin, DDS, we offer tooth-colored fillings that both look natural and protect teeth.
Treating cavities as soon as possible is critical if we want to protect the tooth from further damage. If we don’t remove the decay, it can spread and lead to problems that are more complicated and costly to fix.
It’s important to see Dr. Debra Irvin as soon as possible so she can repair the tooth with a tooth-colored filling. If we don’t address the problem, decay will spread and create more complicated dental problems. The sooner you come in to see Dr. Irvin, the faster we can fill the cavity and restore your oral health.
Prevention is an important part of your routine dental care. We use state-of-the-art digital x-rays because they let us search for and fix problems like cavities long before they can damage your oral health. The high-resolution images produced with digital x-rays are so clear and detailed that we can find tiny cavities that wouldn’t show up on a traditional x-ray. The detailed picture helps Dr. Irvin show you exactly where the cavity is, so you understand what the problem is and why treatment is necessary.
Tooth-Colored Fillings Improve Your Smile
Dr. Irvin stays current with all the latest advances in dentistry and offers customized tooth-colored fillings. The filling is made of a material that closely resembles the look of natural dental enamel and can be customized to match the exact shade of your teeth. The result is such a natural-looking repair that no one will ever know you have a filling!
Since tooth-colored fillings look so natural, we can use them for a cost-effective process called dental bonding that fixes minor cosmetic problems. Dr. Irvin uses the filling material to build up parts of your tooth and fix minor cosmetic problems like broken, chipped, or cracked teeth. Bonding can even be used to cover up a tooth that is severely stained and can’t be whitened.
Enjoy Your Healthiest Smile
Healthy, beautiful teeth can change your entire outlook because you don't have to be embarrassed about smiling in front of others. Tooth-colored fillings are an excellent solution for repairing a damaged tooth and giving you back a smile you feel good about sharing.
