Tooth-colored fillings are customized dental restorations made of either porcelain or composite resin. These materials offer many benefits over traditional metal fillings. Here are just a few of the many reasons Fairfield patients are choosing tooth-colored fillings. Improved Confidence: Tooth-colored fillings restore the teeth to a beautiful, cavity free appearance. Patients will be able to smile with confidence, knowing their teeth look pristine and metal-free. Replace Old Metal Fillings: Old metal fillings can be replaced with tooth-colored fillings to both restore the appearance and the strength of previously treated teeth. Aesthetically Pleasing: Tooth-colored fillings are more aesthetically pleasing than metal fillings. Tooth-colored fillings blend seamlessly with the surrounding tooth, so no one will notice the patient has had dental treatment! Safer for Teeth: Traditionally used silver amalgam has a tendency to expand and contract when in contact with temperature fluctuations. The constant expansion and contraction can put pressure on the tooth, causing it to crack and eventually break. Tooth-colored fillings won't expand and contract, making them safer for the teeth. Restored Dental Strength: Because tooth-colored dental fillings are bonded to the teeth, the strength of the teeth is restored. Custom Shaded: Each tooth-colored filling is made of porcelain or composite resin, which is custom-shaded to perfectly match the surrounding teeth for seamlessly unnoticeable cavity treatment. No Tooth Discoloration: Overtime, silver amalgam metal fillings are known to change the color of the teeth to a grayish tint. Tooth-colored fillings make a better option for cavity treatment, as they will not discolor the teeth. Long Lasting: Tooth-colored fillings are durable and long lasting. With proper care, tooth-colored fillings may last as long as 15 years. Preserves More of the Tooth: Unlike traditional metal fillings, tooth-colored fillings require minimal amounts of the damaged tooth to be removed for placement. This helps maintain the strength of the tooth and minimizes the likelihood of future breakage.
