“Tooth Colored” fillings
Composite “Tooth Colored” Fillings
Composite resin fillings, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small to mid size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. Composite fillings are used to restore decayed teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural. Composite or tooth-colored fillings do not contain mercury or any metal. Composite fillings are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.
Ultimately, the best dental filling is no dental filling. Prevention is the best medicine.
You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases simply by:
- Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
- Flossing daily
- Eating a balanced diet
- Visiting the dentist regularly.
