Tooth Colored Fillings

If you still have metal in your mouth, you may be wondering if switching to a less obvious, more natural choice is a good idea. Tooth colored fillings offer so many benefits over metal, and they are affordable as well. Here's just a few of the ways tooth colored fillings can positively impact your smile:

  • They look and feel like natural teeth
  • They're strong and durable
  • They do not expand and contract like metal (which can cause tooth damage)
  • They are effective in preventing decay
  • There is no mercury danger present
  • They can be matched to your tooth shade

Tooth colored fillings are most often made from composite material, usually a mixture of glass and plastic. One type of tooth colored filling which has become more popular in recent years is porcelain fillings. Porcelain fillings are in high demand because they reflect light like natural enamel. When cemented in place, they are incredibly naturally looking and can last many years.

Tooth colored fillings are easy to place and can be done in 1 -- 2 visits. For more information about how tooth-colored fillings can improve your smile, send me an e-mail.
