Tooth-Colored Fillings in
Cavities are a very common dental issue for patients of all ages. At Cholla Family Dentistry, we provide high-quality, tooth-colored fillings to fill cavities and restore the health, appearance, and function of affected teeth.
Tooth-colored fillings are made of composite and plastic resins. They are strong in order to withstand pressure from normal chewing. Tooth-colored fillings are typically preferred to traditional silver amalgam fillings because they can restore teeth back to their normal appearance.The cost, look, and strength of dental fillings vary. If you’re considering which fillings to choose, it’s important to keep the following points in mind:
Some fillings create the illusion of natural tooth enamel, and others stand out more prominently.
Crowns are “caps” that are placed over damaged teeth or attached to implants to act as replacement teeth.
Natural-looking fillings endure less than the more obvious alternatives. Are you comfortable with fillings that blend with your teeth and last around five years? Or would you prefer a more visible option that lasts ten years or longer? You decide which trade-off works best for you.
Do Fillings Hurt?
When placed with an experienced, gentle touch and proper anesthesia, the process of getting a dental filling is not painful.
