Tooth-colored fillings are dental fillings that restore the natural appearance of a tooth structure. In addition to restoring teeth that have fractured or decayed, tooth-colored fillings may also be used cosmetically to change the size, color and shape of teeth. This process is particularly useful in closing gaps between teeth and making teeth appear more straight or even.
What are the advantages of tooth-colored fillings?
- They blend in flawlessly with the natural shades of teeth and are practically invisible once they are placed
- They bond to the tooth, which reduces the risk of leaking and loose fillings.
- They don’t contain mercury like amalgam fillings.
