Tooth Colored Fillings
Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.
TOOTH-COLORED VS. SILVER FILLINGS?
No dental filling lasts forever. Tooth-colored fillings are now used more often than silver fillings, mainly due to cosmetics, but also because of their durability. In a society focused on a white, bright smile, people tend to want fillings that blend with the natural color of their teeth.
HOW TO AVOID A FILLING
At Broadway Dental Excellence, we ultimately believe that the best dental filling is no dental filling. Prevention is the best medicine. You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases simply by:
- Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
- Flossing daily
- Eating a balanced diet
