Tooth-Colored Fillings for Optimal Strength and Esthetics
In most cases, fillings are the most effective treatment for moderate tooth decay. A filling will strengthen your tooth and prevent additional damage. It is also a conservative option, since it will preserve a large amount of your tooth. In the past, fillings were always made of metal. Today, Jacksonville Dentist Dr. Lysandro Tapnio offers only tooth-colored composite fillings. These restorations provide both cosmetic and functional benefits. They will blend naturally with your smile, and they will bond strongly with your tooth.
