Treating Cavities with Tooth-Colored Fillings
Have you been told you have one or more cavities in need of treatment? In the past, your dentist might have recommended a dark-colored, amalgam, filling.
That's no longer the case. As durable as amalgam fillings are, they have a dark, unattractive color that stands out against a white smile. They're also less conservative compared with tooth-colored fillings, the new standard dentists rely on.
What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Tooth-colored fillings are also known as composite fillings because they're made of composite resin. The cosmetic benefit of composite resin is that it can be shaded to match the color of natural teeth. As a result, tooth-colored fillings blend in rather than standing out. Once treatment has been completed, no one but you and the rest of our team will ever know about the treatment.
There's more to love about tooth-colored fillings than just this cosmetic aspect. Tooth-colored fillings are supportive of the tooth's structure in a way that amalgam fillings aren't, and they provide better insulation against temperature changes.
