Tooth-colored fillings can offer greater durability and strength than traditional metal fillings. But their clearest advantage is in how they look — our tooth-colored fillings use materials that provide you with an aesthetically superior option.
Fillings are typically used when you experience minor damage or decay from cavities. Dental fillings fill the small holes or voids in the teeth that come from cavities. This promotes and restores your tooth’s structure and integrity. Our composite fillings are made with materials that match the color of your natural teeth so you won’t have to sacrifice your smile’s natural beauty!
Tooth-colored fillings are also versatile, and they can be used for issues such as chipped, cracked or broken teeth. The way we achieve the tooth-colored look is by using a mixture of plastic resin and silica materials. This combination creates a translucent effect, giving off a natural look. Aside from the aesthetic advantages, tooth-colored fillings also offer a safer alternative to dental amalgams (metal fillings). The metal that is used for dental amalgams can release toxins over time that can negatively affect the surrounding teeth. You won’t have to worry about that with tooth-colored fillings. They’re safe, strong, durable and look great too.
The procedure only takes one easy visit. If you have minor damage or decay from a cavity, don’t wait to get your filling. Reach out to our friendly staff at (210) 664-0544 to schedule an appointment today.
