White Composite Fillings in Tijuana
At the Medical & Dental Care Tijuana, our specialists use composite fillings made of white resin. The resin is whitened so that it would match your natural teeth color, and hardened with the ultraviolet lamp, in order to blend in with your natural teeth. In fact, the resin will match your natural teeth color when applied to that degree that it won’t be visible.
In earlier days, doctors used to fill tooth cavities with different mixtures of metals, amongst them silver and mercury. So, when a person laughed, it was pretty usual to spot dark or gray fillings in their mouth.
What type of fillings experts us in our Tijuana dental office?
Our doctors use composite fillings made of white resin, because they result in good quality seal, as other metals do, on the affected area. The strong seal will also help to prevent further decay of the tooth. However, different factors are considered while we make a decision of whether to recommend resin composite fillings to a patient or not. These factors include:
– Size of particular area that needs filling
– Whether it is cosmetically desirable to have a filling that is tooth-colored
– The patient’s opinions of the use of different materials in their mouth
– The primary function and the location of the affected are in the mouth
To safely remove mercury/amalgam fillings, we also follow appropriate protocols.
The cost of fillings range between $ 55 and $75 each, here at Medical & Dental Care Tijuana. The price depends on their size.
