What your dentist in Alexandria, Virginia wants you to know.fillings

If you are dealing with cavities, it’s time for you to discover the benefits of tooth-colored fillings. Instead of metal, tooth colored fillings use a liquid resin material known as composite, which blends into and enhances your smile.

Dr. Moutaz Abdeen at Alexandria Smiles Dentistry wants to introduce you to tooth-colored fillings. He proudly serves residents of Alexandria, Alexandria West, Shirlington, and Bailey’s Crossroads, Virginia and he can help you too.

Tooth-colored fillings are cosmetically beautiful and can be perfectly matched to blend in with the color of your teeth. Composite can be sculpted and shaped to blend harmoniously into your smile. People will notice your beautiful smile and not your fillings!

Along with their beauty, tooth-colored fillings are also strong. Composite material binds your tooth together, providing a unified surface that distributes biting stress evenly. A tooth colored filling will help make your tooth more resistant to fracturing and breaking. A tooth colored filling will bond your tooth together, not separate it. Your tooth will be stronger, not weaker.

Tooth colored fillings can be used to replace old, crumbly metal fillings, and they can also be used to repair teeth that are:

  • Damaged or broken due to decay or an injury
  • Excessively worn down or eroded due to aging
  • Cracked or fractured from bad habits or an accident

Next time you need a filling, think about tooth colored fillings, the modern way to restore your teeth.
