If you suffer from decayed, disfigured or discolored teeth, you may be a good candidate for tooth-colored fillings or restorations. Once Dr. Strickland has removed the decayed portion of the tooth, he replaces it with “filling” material. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned-out portion of the tooth. With new advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings, resulting in a long lasting, brighter, whiter smile. The new tooth-colored material is bonded to the teeth for a stronger restoration.
To correct chips, broken, stained or discolored teeth, Dr. Strickland offers bonding, a tooth-colored material applied and adhered to the surface of the tooth.
