In recent years, there has been an enormous improvement in the types of materials available for dental restorations. One that has been especially beneficial for our patients is tooth-colored dental composite, a blend of plastic and glass particles that closely resembles natural dental enamel.
Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings
Tooth-colored composite fillings are an excellent choice because of the benefits they offer:
- Natural appearance – Not only do composite fillings have the same aesthetic qualities as dental enamel, but we can also customize the shade to blend perfectly with surrounding teeth. The result is a repair that’s so seamless even you won’t be able to tell where the filling meets your teeth.
- Preserves tooth structure – Our goal is to preserve as much of your healthy tooth for as long as possible. The composite material allows us to create a durable filling because it is bonded directly to the remaining structure of your teeth.
- Long-lasting – With the proper preventive care that includes diligent oral hygiene and six-month checkups at Evolve Dentistry, a composite filling should last at least five years.
We would be happy to arrange an appointment with one of our doctors to review your needs and answer your questions about tooth-colored fillings in Allentown. Please call us so we can get started!
