Tooth decay can not only ruin a healthy smile, it can result in severe pain, cavities and tooth loss. Composite fillings are a unique and effective cosmetic dental treatment to prevent the spread of tooth decay and restore your affected tooth to its former radiant glory. Consisting of state-of-the-art materials that promise to last for years, these fillings are also more natural looking than conventional metal fillings.
Thanks to advances in dental technology, tooth fillings no longer need to be silver or some other material and color that were decidedly not at all tooth-like. Fortunately, today you have choices in both material and color that offer lasting protection and durability with the appearance you want in a tooth filling.
Composite fillings are a blend of resin and glass that will hold up to the rigors of chewing. While they are not as long-lasting as conventional amalgam fillings, they are more cosmetically appealing because of their tooth-like appearance.
Natural Teeth Color Fillings
Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings can be made to match your tooth color in order to provide a more natural looking appearance. These fillings must be kept dry when installed, so the procedure takes somewhat longer than traditional fillings and may not be covered by your insurance. Consult with our office staff on your next visit and see what your options are for getting the tooth fillings you need.
