Tooth Colored Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings, white fillings and composite resin fillings are all names for the high-strength, natural-looking fillings that can be placed today instead of silver or gold (also known as amalgam fillings). No matter what the name, Nobscot Dental Care will know just what you're talking about when referring to this natural-looking filling.
Call us at (508) 276-5077 or request an appointment online so we can discuss the benefits of white fillings and how they can help improve your smile.
White fillings are made from a high-strength composite resin that can be easily color-matched to your natural tooth making it nearly invisible to you and anyone else. Unlike silver and gold fillings, composite tooth-colored fillings actually bond to the tooth which means they support the surrounding tooth structure, which helps to prevent breakage and insulate the tooth from excessive temperature changes. You are much less likely to have a composite filling fall out which is a common issue with metal fillings.
In order to make a filling appear almost invisible to the naked eye, composite fillings are often used. These fillings are designed to match your natural tooth color and are bonded to your teeth, which makes them less likely to fall out. These fillings are used to replace older fillings made of silver or gold. Tooth-colored fillings have a more aesthetic appearance, can be completed in one visit, have no chance of forming a "leak" and are less likely to crack a tooth.
