TOOTH COLORED FILLINGS Pasadena, Deer Park Texas:
In the past, teeth were commonly filled with grey metal fillings. Today that is almost unheard of as more natural-looking and metal-free fillings are the new standard of care.
Dr. Nugent uses composite resins that are tooth colored to restore damaged teeth. These white fillings have a long successful history in dentistry. Understandably, the most important feature for many people is that the white fillings look like natural teeth.
Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide amazing durability to restored teeth. They can be used on teeth in the front or back teeth.
Composites cost slightly more than the old metal (amalgam) fillings due to the increased cost of the materiel and the extra time it takes to place a white filling. Insurances only want to pay for the cheapest procedure and often will not pay for the full cost of a white filling. Insurances commonly pay out what a silver fillings would cost. The insurance does not care if you have a superior filing and a filling that looks completely natural. The Dental Insurance company only cares about paying out as little possible.
Prevention is the best medicine. The best dental filling is no dental filling. You can almost eliminate cavities and other dental diseases simply by:
- Brushing your teeth twice a day with a quality electric toothbrush
- Using a toothpaste that has fluoride
- Flossing daily
- Eating a balanced diet
- Visiting Dr. Nugent’s Pasadena Texas Dental office regularly
