At Premier Dental & Implant Center, we believe that all dentistry has a cosmetic element to it, regardless of its primary purpose. Consider, for instance, one of the most time-honored of all dental services, the basic filling. Dental fillings have been used in one form or another for centuries to restore form and function to structurally damaged teeth. In the past, however, while silver amalgam, gold, and other metal fillings did their jobs admirably well, they were far from natural looking or cosmetically appealing. At Premier Dental & Implant Center, where we believe that healthy smiles should also be beautiful, we have replaced the traditional metal filling with a more aesthetic alternative that is every bit as strong and durable: the tooth-colored filling.
Tooth-colored fillings provide all of the benefits of their metal counterparts, plus more. Dr. Yamen Akhras discusses tooth-colored filling benefits in detail during consultations at his Orland Park, IL cosmetic dentistry practice so that patients understand why he prefers these restorations in every aspect over metal fillings. He wants patients to be as knowledgeable as possible about the procedures they are going to undergo so that they can make confident, educated decisions about their oral health care.
