Are you tired of conspicuous silver fillings every time you open your mouth? Engineered Smiles in Marietta, GA, offers a solution: tooth-colored fillings.
Since the 1960s, these fillings have been enhancing smiles, and today, advancements in dental technology make them an even more compelling choice. Here are five reasons why you should consider opting for tooth-colored fillings:
1. Aesthetic Appeal:
One of the primary reasons patients choose tooth-colored fillings is their aesthetic appeal. Unlike traditional silver amalgam fillings, composite fillings can be precisely tinted to match the exact color of your natural teeth.
This advantage means your dental work becomes virtually invisible, seamlessly blending with the rest of your smile. No more self-conscious moments when you laugh or yawn—just a natural and beautiful appearance.
2. Improved Durability and Strength:
Early composite materials had limitations, particularly in durability and strength, which restricted their use in molars or large fillings. However, advancements in dental materials have addressed these issues.
Modern composite resins provide a stronger bond to natural teeth, ensuring the longevity and resilience of tooth-colored fillings. Now, you can enjoy both aesthetics and durability in one dental solution.
3. Natural Look and Feel:
Composite resin, the material used in tooth-colored fillings, is a combination of ceramic or glass and plastic. When cured with a special light, these materials create a smooth and slick finish that closely mimics the natural texture of your teeth.
The result is a filling that looks and feels like a part of your natural tooth structure. You will feel more confident when you speak, laugh, or smile. Patients do not get the same benefits with outdated metal fillings.
4. Minimal Tooth Prepping:
Compared to traditional amalgam fillings, composite resin fillings require less prepping of the tooth. This means that more of your natural tooth structure is preserved during filling.
Once the resin is set and cured, it is meticulously trimmed and polished to achieve a high gloss. This preservation of natural tooth structure contributes to both the aesthetics and the overall health of your teeth.
5. Conceal Your Dental Work:
In the past, dental work on back teeth could be easily spotted when you opened your mouth wide. Tooth-colored fillings eliminate this concern. Your dental work will remain discreet whether you’re laughing, singing, or yawning. Now, you can confidently show off your smile without any visible signs of dental work.
