What are four benefits of tooth-colored fillings?

Your Allentown dentist offers tooth-colored fillings to repair damaged or decayed teeth. Though silver amalgam fillings and metal fillings are still used in modern dentistry, many patients and dentists prefer tooth-colored fillings for several reasons. woman with curly hair smiling | tooth colored fillings allentown

Here are four benefits of tooth-colored fillings. 

#1 Aesthetically Appealing 

Tooth-colored fillings match the exact shade of your natural tooth, so no one can tell you’ve had dental work done. They are completely free of metal and mercury, so you can enjoy a gorgeous smile for many years to come. 

#2 Preserves Healthy Tooth Structure 

Tooth-colored fillings are made from a composite resin that bonds directly to the tooth. Because of this, your dentist in Allentown doesn’t have to remove as much natural tooth structure as we would with metal fillings, like silver amalgam or gold. 

#3 Quick, Painless Treatment 

The tooth-colored filling process is painless and quick. It takes less than an hour to treat one or two cavities. After applying a local anesthetic to numb the gums and teeth, we remove the decay, clean the tooth, apply the tooth-colored resin, shape and cure the material, and polish the final filling. 

#4 Long-Lasting 

If properly cared for, your tooth-colored fillings can last for ten years or longer. We recommend brushing twice daily, flossing daily, and receiving routine exams and cleanings every six months.
