Treating Cavities with Tooth-Colored Fillings
In the past, having a cavity treated meant an unattractive gray filling, known as an amalgam filling, placed on your tooth. Thankfully, amalgam fillings, which are made of metal, are no longer the primary solution for treating cavities. At Floridian Dental Group, patients who need treatment for decay can look forward to discreet care with tooth-colored fillings. These fillings, also known as composite fillings, can be shaded to blend in with your teeth color for results that look natural.
The benefits of tooth-colored fillings extend beyond this attractive cosmetic benefit. However, Tooth-colored fillings are also more conservative than amalgam fillings. Composite resin, the material used for tooth-colored fillings, is more supportive of the tooth’s natural structure than amalgam. As a result, we can remove less of your tooth structure as we’re preparing it for treatment. Keeping more of your natural tooth structure will help you preserve your teeth going forward.
