If you’ve got a cavity, we’ve got good news with tooth-colored fillings. Long gone are the days when silver, or amalgam, was the only option for filling spots of decay. Modern dentistry now offers a method that uses a composite resin material that blends flawlessly with the rest of your natural teeth. The team at Premier Dental is pleased to offer this option to all of our patients -- keep reading to learn more about tooth-colored fillings in Vero Beach.

Why Choose Premier Dental for Tooth Colored Fillings?

Tooth-Colored Fillings: The Basics

The composite resin used in tooth-colored fillings is made of a mixture of smooth glass and plastic materials. It’s highly customizable to match the shade of your surrounding teeth -- something you just can’t do with silver fillings. The procedure is similar to that of a silver filling, though extra care is taken to make sure the tooth surface stays completely dry for secure bonding between the enamel and composite resin. More of the natural tooth structure stays intact with this method, too.

Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

One significant advantage of choosing a tooth-colored filling is the fact that the composite resin material is easily shaded to match the surrounding teeth. But the benefits go well beyond the aesthetic. We’ve listed some of the most apparent advantages of fillings made from composite resin here.

In addition to filling cavities and repairing broken or fractured teeth, the material used for tooth-colored fillings can also be used to make cosmetic improvements to a damaged or imperfect tooth. Chips, cracks, slight gaps, staining, and misalignments can all be corrected with composite resin in a treatment we call cosmetic bonding.

Replacing Your Existing Metal Fillings

In addition to filling new spots of decay with tooth-colored fillings, your Vero Beach dentist can replace existing silver fillings to correct an existing issue, like breakage or a leaking filling. Replacement may also be chosen to prevent future problems or reduce the worry for potential mercury exposure.

If you’re wondering whether or not to replace fillings that aren’t causing you any current problems, it really just depends on how proactive you want to be. No filling will last forever, and silver fillings may hide evidence of leakage or further decay -- so having your silver fillings replaced before there are any existing issues could potentially save you a significant amount of time and stress in the long run.
