Have your old fillings crumbled over time? Don’t be distressed—it’s bound to happen. While your old silver fillings served you well, there are new options available from Dr. Prabha Singh, Dr. Alina Huff, and Dr. Rani Seeth here at Bolingbrook Dental Care of Illinois to resolve this issue.
The latest development in restorative dentistry, tooth-colored fillings are a great option, especially if your fillings are towards the front of the mouth. This will make your smile more appealing without the distraction of shinning metal fillings—read on to learn the advantages of this new restorative option.
So, What Exactly Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Made of resin-based materials, tooth-colored fillings are used to fill in dental cavities after removal of dental decay or old metal fillings. Depending on how much of the tooth needs restoration, the procedure may be accomplished in just one visit. However, if a large volume of tooth material must be replaced, a section can be made outside the mouth and later bonded to the tooth.
The best way to decide if tooth-colored fillings are right for you is to schedule a consultation with one of the dentists here at our Bolingbrook office.
What Tooth-Colored Fillings Can Do for You
In addition to their ability to fix issues such as tooth decay, tooth-colored fillings provide a number of advantages, including:
- They bear an uncanny resemblance to natural teeth, thus creating a seamless smile
- They are easily molded to match the structure of the surrounding teeth
- They are durable, fracture-resistant, and able to withstand chewing pressure
