Tooth Colored Fillings
Tooth colored fillings, or composites, can restore teeth more esthetically than silver fillings. They are not only beautiful (or unnoticeable) but also add strength to weakened teeth. These restorations are esthetically pleasing and very strong thanks to new bonding technology.
Silver fillings can be replaced with Tooth-Colored Restorations.
Advantages of Tooth-Colored Restorations
There are many advantages to tooth-colored restorations. Composites are bonded to the teeth creating a tight fit. Such restorations can be used to replace cracked or worn silver fillings, and to restore cracked or broken front teeth.
Since the resin used in tooth-colored restorations contain fluoride this can help prevent decay. The resin wears like natural teeth.
The result is a beautiful smile!
