Tooth Colored Fillings

tooth-colored-before-after Fillings Carrollton

Tooth-colored fillings, also called white fillings, are dental fillings that restore and mimic the natural appearance of tooth structure. In addition to restoring teeth that have fractured or decayed, tooth-colored fillings may also be used cosmetically to change the size, color and shape of teeth. This quality is particularly useful in closing gaps between teeth; repairing chipped teeth and making teeth appear to be more straight or even.

What are the advantages of tooth-colored fillings (white fillings)?

  • They closely match natural tooth color and appearance.
  • They bond to tooth structure chemically and thus do not require the placement of slots, grooves or pins in healthy tooth structure to mechanically retain them.
  • The bonding of white fillings to the tooth restore 85% – 95% of the original strength of the tooth.
  • They completely harden in seconds instead of days required by some other materials.
  • Tooth sensitivity, if any, due to composite resin use is minimal and brief.
  • They may be used on front and back teeth without compromising esthetics.
  • If damaged they can be repaired.
