Tooth Colored Fillings

Give Your Smile a Natural Look With Tooth Colored Fillings

Tooth colored fillings, also known as white fillings, are dental fillings that restore and mimic the natural appearance of tooth structure. Besides for restoring teeth that have fractured or decayed, tooth colored fillings may also be used cosmetically to change the color, size and shape of teeth. They are also useful in closing gaps between teeth, repairing chipped teeth and making teeth appear to be more straight or even.

Tooth colored fillings are very popular among people. They are made from acrylic and glass particles and match very well with the color of the tooth to give it a natural look. There are different types of tooth fillings available in the market but white colored fillings are preferred by a large number of people due to the various benefits associated with them. Here is a list of benefits that you get when choosing tooth colored fillings:

  • They act as the best option for restoring front teeth or the teeth that are visible during laughing or talking as they match well with the original color of the tooth, making the tooth look natural.
  • These fillings not only help in restoring tooth damaged with cavity but are also very beneficial in repairing a broken or chipped tooth.
  • They bond to the tooth structure chemically and do not require the placement of slots, grooves or pins to mechanically retain them.
  • The bonding of white fillings to the tooth restores 85% – 95% of the original strength of the tooth.
  • They completely harden in seconds instead of days compared to other materials.
  • Tooth sensitivity, if any, due to the use of composite resin is minimal and brief.

They can be repaired easily if damaged.
