Tooth Colored Fillings
What Are Tooth Colored Fillings?
Tooth colored fillings, also known as white fillings, are a type of dental fillings made of composites or resins. Tooth colored fillings restore the natural appearance of the tooth that has been damaged by tooth decay. Tooth colored fillings are an excellent way to change the color of damaged teeth cosmetically, and can also be used to change the size and shape of teeth, too.
What Are the Advantages of Tooth Colored Fillings?
There are numerous advantages of tooth colored fillings. One advantage is that they can be designed to closely match your natural tooth color and appearance, which makes them undetectable in any part of your smile.
Another advantage of tooth colored fillings is that they can bond tightly to the teeth, unlike metal amalgam or gold fillings. This ability gives back strength to the teeth.
Many patients opt to have tooth colored fillings when replacing their metal amalgam fillings. Learn more about tooth colored fillings by calling Dr. George at 724.943.3422.
