Tooth-Colored Fillings in Rancho Mirage
Luckily, metal fillings aren’t the only option anymore. These days, white fillings, also called tooth-colored fillings, are available to fit right into the aesthetic of your smile.
White fillings are created from a custom shaded composite resin, so your Rancho Mirage dentist can match the color precisely to the rest of your teeth for a natural look. This resin is malleable so that your dentist can shape it precisely to make your teeth complete again. Once the filling is in place, we will cure it with a special UV light to harden it and make it durable. Finally, Dr. Strober will check to make sure the filling doesn’t impact your bite. It’s that easy — you’ll be in and out with your new filling in just one short appointment.
We also offer a more cosmetic and more durable filling option. With our CEREC system, we can craft a fully ceramic filling for your teeth in just one visit. These fillings look just like your natural tooth material–they even have the luster of natural tooth enamel–and they are the longest-lasting fillings available.
Unfortunately, no filling lasts forever. If your amalgam fillings need to be replaced, don’t go back to metal in your mouth — try a white filling to see how the difference in appearance can transform the look of your smile. Not sure if your fillings need to be replaced yet? That’s not a problem — Rancho Mirage dentist Dr. Strober can replace a filling any time, even if it’s just for cosmetic reasons.
