Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

The cosmetic advantages of tooth-colored fillings (also known as “white” fillings or “composite” fillings) are not their only benefit. Unlike traditional metal fillings, tooth-colored fillings typically require less tooth removal while reinforcing and strengthening the structure of your teeth.

Tooth-colored fillings help to avert more serious dental issues and can often prevent the need for a crown or root canal. When a traditional metal filling becomes loose, the space created between the metal filling and the natural tooth can turn into a breeding ground for bacteria where severe problems can develop. Tooth-colored fillings are more bonded to the tooth, reducing this possibility. Metal fillings are also subject to expanding and contracting slightly with the temperature. Over time, this expansion and contraction can cause the tooth to crack or break

Tooth-Colored Fillings Procedure

Once our dentists have identified the cavity and removed the tooth decay, a composite resin or porcelain material is bonded to the tooth. Compared to the techniques used for traditional metal fillings, the procedure for tooth-colored fillings actually conserves more of the natural tooth. The result is a tooth that is stronger and more structurally sound than before. Plus, since the filling material is designed to blend into the color of the tooth itself, the outcome looks very natural.
