For a long time, dentists used metal fillings to help patients treat teeth affected by decay. But today, there’s a more conservative and discreet treatment option: tooth-colored fillings.
Natural Looking Dental Fillings
Metal fillings merely act as a barrier to decay, but tooth-colored fillings actually bond with teeth, strengthening the tooth as it wards off decay. This bond can last for as long as 7 to10 years. In that time, your fillings won’t break or change shape, the way metal fillings can. That’s because metal fillings aren’t affected by temperature changes or by the impact of chewing and biting.
Tooth-colored fillings also make it possible for you to enjoy more discreet results. Metal fillings have a dark, unattractive color, but tooth-colored fillings can be shaded to blend in with your smile’s natural color.
