Tooth Colored Fillings
What are tooth colored fillings?
Tooth colored fillings (or composite fillings) are white restorations used to repair damage to a tooth caused by decay, cracks, or fractures. This type of filling can be closely matched to the shade of your tooth to provide a seamless, pleasant looking restoration, especially when used on visible areas of your teeth.
Reasons for getting tooth colored fillings
- To repair chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- To close a gap between two teeth
- To restore worn or decayed teeth
We will provide instructions for the care of your new fillings. As with your natural teeth, proper oral hygiene, good eating habits, and regular dental visits are recommended to extend the life of your new fillings.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about tooth colored fillings or to schedule a smile consultation with one of our dentists.
