When it comes to selecting the best material for you and your particular teeth, consultation with your McKinney Dentist Dr. Prida is key. Tooth-colored fillings also called composite fillings, offer an aesthetic alternative to silver (dental amalgam) fillings that are hard to match. Made of a blend of plastic resins and silica fillers, they allow for a more conservative treatment method that preserves more of the tooth’s structure. Tooth-colored fillings strengthen and mimic many of the qualities of natural tooth structure and translucency. This quality is particularly useful in closing gaps between teeth; repairing chipped teeth and making teeth appear to be more straight or even.
Advantages of tooth colored fillings
- They closely match natural tooth color and appearance
- They bond to tooth structure chemically
- 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 aesthetics
- If damaged they can be repaired
Strength, aesthetics, cost and longevity of dental filling materials may vary in different situations and for different patients. The McKinney Dentist, Dr. Prida always takes you into account when recommending a particular filling material for your teeth. Schedule your appointment today.
