What are the benefits of tooth-colored fillings?
More often than not, having a tooth-colored filling is now an option in most dental offices. This is because many patients are now discovering the benefits of having tooth-colored fillings. Here are some of the perks of tooth-colored fillings. We offer modern tooth-colored options here in our Lake Fort Worth dental office.
Benefits of Tooth-Colored Restorations
Natural-Looking Results – Unlike metal amalgam fillings, composite fillings come in a range of shades to match your natural teeth – no matter what color they are. Dr. Kromrey will choose the shade that will blend most closely with your tooth for a seamless appearance.
Conservative Treatment – Metal fillings require the removal of a significant amount of tooth structure to anchor them in place. Since tooth-colored fillings bond directly to the teeth using a special bonding agent, we can remove less healthy tooth structure than required with dark metal fillings.
Dental Bonding with Composite – If you chipped a front tooth, chances are it is starting to absorb stains from food and beverages. This is because your enamel is damaged and the chip can collect more stains than intact enamel. We can fill small chips, gaps, and reshape teeth for a cosmetically pleasing appearance.
