Hello! Welcome to the Five Star Dental Care blog. If this your first visit, we hope you find useful information about our Riverview FL cosmetic dentistry practice. If you have read some of our previous articles, we are glad you checked back with us. We post new articles regularly.
My name is Dr. Jeff Bynum, DDS. I have been practicing dentistry in the Riverview FL area since 1996. Five Star Dental Care is a full-service dental office located at 3203 Lithia Pinecrest Rd in Valrico. In addition to providing comprehensive examinations and deep cleanings for clients in the Riverview FL area, we perform all types of tooth restorations.
When a tooth has decay or has been damaged, a restorative dentist is needed to ‘restore’ the tooth to its previous intact condition. A dental filling is one of the most common and well-known types of restorations. A dental filling is used to repair decayed or damaged tooth surfaces. Most people have a few fillings in their mouth.
If you have old silver amalgam fillings, we can replace them with nearly-invisible tooth colored fillings. These fillings are made out of a strong composite resin. Many of our Riverview FL cosmetic dentistry patients have replaced their old silver fillings with fillings matched to their teeth. You can improve your smile instantly and relatively inexpensively by getting rid of the ‘metal’.
Another reason some Riverview FL clients have had their old fillings replaced is because they are concerned about the possible heavy metal toxicity of the mercury in the silver.
If you would like to replace your amalgam fillings, call us at 813-653-2273 to schedule a consultation. We are currently accepting new patients and would be happy to show you around our Riverview FL cosmetic dental office and introduce you to our friendly team. We are also skilled in a variety of other cosmetic dental procedures including teeth whitening, dental implants, clear braces and porcelain veneers.
Smile – it increases your face value!
