What are the advantages of tooth-colored fillings?

We all want to present a smile to the world that looks beautiful and natural. Many dentists like Dr. Law use tooth-colored fillings – also referred to as composites - when appropriate, because they not only blend so perfectly with natural teeth, but they also react more like a natural tooth.

Years ago, we didn’t have a lot of choices when it came to material for dental fillings. Fortunately, advances in dentistry provide us with options that make it possible for us to choose specific materials that are good for your oral health and also enhance your appearance.

Composite material is a good aesthetic choice for filling teeth that are visible when you smile. Restoring teeth effectively depends on a strong, durable bond between your dental enamel and the filling material, making composite fillings a perfect choice for certain types of repairs. This characteristic also makes tooth-colored composites perfect for dental bonding to fix chipped, cracked, or severely stained teeth.

If you’re interested in learning more about tooth-colored fillings and how they can benefit you, please contact our Vinton dental office. We will be happy to make an appointment to discuss this versatile treatment as well as your other options for restoring your teeth.
