When Are Tooth Fillings Necessary?
A tooth filling may be necessary if a patient’s tooth has become:
A tooth filling will repair the tooth and prevent further damage or decay. Dental fillings are common options for repairing some tooth damage and should be considered when the existing tooth structure is stable and easy to work with.
Tooth-Colored Fillings vs. Traditional Dental Fillings
In years past, only silver-toned, metal amalgam dental fillings were available to fill teeth. While less expensive, overtime a metal tooth filling could give the tooth a grayish appearance, causing the tooth to appear damaged.
Modern dentistry has evolved to develop tooth-colored dental fillings that are made from the composite resin of acrylic plastics. This type of tooth filling will not cause your tooth to discolor or gray. Tooth-colored fillings are designed to mimic the natural dentin found within your teeth, and therefore have a better bonding property to the tooth surface and offer better insulation during temperature changes.
Dr. Bidabadi only offers tooth-colored dental fillings to her patients.
Will My Teeth Look Natural With Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Just like it sounds, tooth-colored fillings are created to match the tone and color of your existing teeth. Therefore, with a tooth filling from Soft Touch Dentistry, you will see a solid colored tooth that looks as natural as possible.
