Tooth-Colored Restorations (fillings)
Tooth-colored restorations: If you’re embarrassed about your smile because of decay or dark fillings in your teeth, you may be a good candidate for composite resins. A silicon dioxide-filled, tooth-colored plastic mixture, composite resins can restore teeth to an attractive, healthy state. Composite resins represent several advantages over traditional silver or amalgam fillings. Because composite resins are not made of metal, we can blend and mix shades to find the perfect color to match your natural teeth. This means only you and your dentist will know you have fillings. Another pro is that the tooth/composite bond actually supports the remaining tooth structure, deterring breakage and insulating against temperature changes. Best of all, composite resins allow us to keep more of your natural tooth structure intact than amalgams (silver fillings). We believe in conservative & preventive dentistry – the more natural the tooth structure you keep, the better teeth you’ll likely have in the future, and treating a decayed tooth in the early stages is much easier on you & your wallet, usually, a simple filling can save the tooth. But waiting to restore a tooth that has caries can lead to more invasive techniques such as root canals or extractions don’t wait for the inevitable, cavities never go away on their own; they only get larger with time.
