What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Also called composite fillings, tooth-colored fillings use a composite resin of plastics, glass particles or ceramics. This high-quality resin recreates the strength and natural look of your enamel for a seamless restoration. Tooth-colored fillings can be used on the front teeth as well as the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to fill cavities and other issues in the surface of your enamel.
What Are the Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Unlike silver, gold or other fillings, tooth-colored fillings contain no metals such as mercury or tin. Silver fillings can often cause the surrounding tooth structure to darken or turn gray over time, compromising the appearance of your smile. The composite resin we use can be shaded to closely match your natural tooth and doesn’t cause discoloration.
Tooth-colored fillings chemically bond to the structure of your tooth when placed, helping to strengthen it and provide additional support for your restoration. This means we can often repair your tooth without needing to remove as much material as we do with metal fillings, making tooth-colored fillings a more conservative restoration method.
The composite resin can also be used in other dental and cosmetic restorations. We use the resin to repair chipped or cracked teeth, reshape irregularly sized or shaped teeth, fill gaps between teeth, or treat discolorations in the enamel.
