Dental fillings can be used on teeth that are decayed, cracked or stained. Tooth-Colored Fillings can be a great cosmetic option for those patients who do not wish to have silver fillings. In addition to the cosmetic advantages, tooth-colored restorations are better for your overall tooth and gum health.
There are several advantages to tooth-colored fillings, including:
- A stronger bond to the tooth structure that restores 85% - 95% of the tooth's strength
- A much more natural look, since they closely match the tooth's appearance
- The presence of fluoride which helps prevent future decay
- The reduction of tooth sensitivity
- The ease of repair
At Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we do everything we can to ensure that your new fillings make you confident in your smile and feel very natural. If you have questions about whether tooth-colored fillings are the right option for you, please give us a call for a consultation. We can recommend a filling that takes into account the current condition of your teeth and the area being restored.
