When you have to have a filling in a visible tooth, a great option is tooth-colored fillings. The composite resins which make up these fillings are a great match for the natural color of your teeth, leaving your smile as bright and natural as ever.

What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?

If you need to have a cavity filled but you want your smile to remain natural and healthy looking, then tooth-colored fillings are for you. This is simply a filling that uses a composite resin to match the color of your natural teeth.

Where Do I Need Tooth-Colored Fillings?

They can be used anywhere, but they are especially desired for teeth that are visible as you smile and speak. In our visual society, people value a bright and pleasant smile. While traditional silver fillings can strongly distract from your smile, tooth-colored fillings maintain your vibrant smile while allowing the dentist to address your dental needs.

Are There Any Other Advantages?

Besides looking great, tooth-colored fillings fit much more tightly with your natural teeth. This tight fit reduces the possibility of fractures and cracks that sometimes affect other filling options. These fillings are also are generally very simple to repair.

Ultimately, prevention is your best friend when it comes to fillings. Practice good oral hygiene on a daily basis and show up for your regular cleanings to greatly reduce the possibility of needing fillings at all.
