Fillings are an excellent way to restore and repair teeth that have been affected by cavities and decay. The office of Langston Amador Dental Group offers high-quality, tooth-colored fillings as a natural-looking and better way to restore the health of your teeth.
Tooth-colored fillings are made of composite material and can be closely matched to the natural color of your teeth, but their benefits go way beyond just aesthetics. Tooth-colored fillings are more stable and actually add to the natural strength of your teeth. In comparison to traditional amalgam fillings, composite fillings are resistant to changes in temperature inside the oral cavity, and hence they do not contract or expand, which causes breakage. Also, metal fillings tend to blacken with time, which spoils the appearance of your smile.
Tooth-colored fillings are best suited for small to moderate-sized restorations. They are fracture-resistant, durable, and are resistant to chewing pressure. Based on how much of the tooth needs to be repaired, the procedure may be accomplished in just one visit. In case a large portion of the tooth needs repair, we may recommend the use of inlay or onlay restorations.
If you have cavities that need to be treated, a visit with our professional team can help you determine if tooth-colored fillings are right for you. Our experts can help you understand your options and provide the best treatment to make your smile healthy again.
