Tooth-Colored Fillings

Composite Fillings

The majority of people have had a filling at some point since fillings are used in order to treat tooth decay or to restore a tooth that has been damaged. Silver amalgam fillings are the most popular type of filling, but tooth-colored fillings are becoming more popular since they are a close match to the natural color and appearance of your teeth, allowing them to blend in seamlessly in your mouth. Tooth-colored fillings are also used by our dentist in order to change the color, shape or size of your teeth.

Advantages of tooth-colored fillings

  • Cosmetic fillings harden within seconds
  • The bonding of cosmetic fillings to your tooth will restore between 85%-95% of your tooth’s original strength
  • There is little to no pain/sensitivity
  • They are a close match to the natural color and appearance of your tooth
  • They chemically bond to your tooth structure, so you do not need any pins, slots or grooves to be placed in your healthy teeth

Don’t Be Afraid To Smile

There is no longer a need to be self-conscious about your smile because of an unattractive silver dental filling. Tooth-colored fillings are an excellent alternative to restore your tooth, while still allowing your smile to be brilliant and white.
