Tooth Colored Fillings for Discreet Restorations

discreetFilling-blog_103114The overall health of your teeth and gums is our number one priority at Dental Solutions Creating Smiles. However, a commitment to dental health does not mean that the appearance or beauty of your smile must suffer as a result.

Due to modern advances in dental care, most tooth restorations can now be performed in a manner that blends in with the natural shape and color of your healthy teeth. This is also true of dental fillings. The days of filling tooth decay and cavities with silver, metal fillings are long gone.

While metal fillings were easy for dentists to install, over time they would often present unique challenges to patients. For example, the amalgam used was unable to move with teeth over time or even with changes in temperature. This would cause the metal fillings to shift and teeth to crack, or even for the filling to completely fall out. Having metal in the mouth also put patients at greater risk for tooth sensitivity over time. Finally, silver fillings could also cause the tooth to become discolored over time and even look “dead” even though it was quite healthy.

Luckily, the standard practice in filling cavities has evolved into the use of composite, tooth-colored resin. This resin is discreet, because it is created in the same shade as your existing tooth, but is also strong and will not shift or crack over time.

If you are suffering from tooth decay, it is important to have your affected tooth restored immediately. Otherwise, if left unaddressed, tooth decay can deepen to the point of requiring a more elaborate repair such as a root canal or even an extraction. Contact Dental Solutions today to learn more about the discreet and effective restoration of your decayed teeth with composite fillings.
