How tooth colored fillings from your dentist in Reidsville, North Carolina can help your smile

Clear White SmileDo you want to know more about tooth-colored fillings? Tooth-colored fillings can restore your teeth, providing strong protection, and they can also make your smile look great too! Dr. Cynthia A. Bolton in Reidsville, North Carolina wants to introduce you to the benefits of this dental treatment.

Tooth colored fillings can fill in cavities created by tooth decay just like metal fillings can. The difference is, tooth colored fillings may be a stronger restoration because they bond different sections of your tooth together, forming a whole tooth once again.

Tooth-colored fillings may be stronger, but the main difference is, they are much more beautiful than metal fillings. That’s because tooth-colored fillings are made of composite, a liquid resin material that can be matched to the color of your tooth enamel. It can also be perfectly sculpted to match the contours of your teeth. Then the material is hardened with a dental light. Because of the unique properties of the composite, your tooth colored fillings will be virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

In addition to the most natural looking filling material, tooth colored fillings have many other benefits including:

  • Quick treatment, because most procedures can be done in one appointment.
  • Cost-effective treatment, because cost is comparable to other filling materials

Next time you need a filling, or if you need to replace your old metal fillings with a new, cosmetically beautiful alternative, think about tooth colored fillings.
