Patients naturally want their smiles to be beautiful and healthy, and this is what they receive from the doctors at the Holistic Dental Centers in Cary and Cornelius. If a tooth has a cavity, Dr. McMillan can restore the tooth with a composite filling.
Composite fillings are favored by patients for their aesthetic value. When the restoration is complete, it is virtually invisible when patients smile or laugh, even when a front tooth has been restored.
Composite fillings provide patients with a safer and healthier restoration option. Some of the benefits include:
When discussing dental restorations, there is normally a list of who is, and is not, a good candidate for a particular procedure. The recommendation to treat a tooth with a composite filling is based on the extent of the damage done to the tooth’s structure. If the tooth has too much damage for a filling, Dr. McMillan may recommend a dental crown or fixed dental bridge. They will always suggest the most conservative treatment option and make sure you understand what options are available.
Many patients had silver fillings placed through the years, unaware that they contained mercury and the health hazard they posed. Dr. McMillan can safely remove these old fillings and replace them with composite fillings. They use a method that protects the patient from the mercury while it is being removed. Their practice is not only mercury free but also mercury safe.
