Tooth Filling Benefits

  • Improves tooth appearance. Composite, tooth-colored fillings can be a great way to improve the appearance of your tooth, due to the ability to match the color/shade perfectly with your natural smile.
  • Improves tooth durability. When a tooth is decayed or damaged it can be weakened; our dental fillings in St. Pete beach help provide durability to the tooth and protect it from fracturing.
  • Repairs tooth damage. As your tooth becomes damaged or decayed it can lose structural integrity, making it more susceptible to further damage. Our St. Petersburg dental fillings can help repair this damage and prevent further complications.
  • Prevents further infection. When a tooth is decayed, infected or damaged the problem can spread to the root of your tooth, dental fillings can stop the infection and prevent it from spreading further into the tooth.
