Dental Fillings Summerlin

 

For generations, cavities were the most common problem treated by dentists. Today, simple cavities can be treated and further decay can be stopped with natural-looking, tooth-colored fillings. These fillings provide a durable, functional, yet cosmetically appealing result.   
 
What are Tooth-Colored fillings?
Tooth-colored fillings, or sometimes called composite or white fillings, are made from a composite resin, which is placed in the prepared cavity and then cured/hardened using special lights or lasers. The composite can be colored in different shades so your filling can match your specific tooth color and can conveniently be performed in just one office visit.
 
Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings
  • Look more natural and aesthetic than earlier metal or amalgam fillings.
  • Today's new composite fillings' adhesive requires less tooth structure to be removed in order to bond and secure the filling in place.
  • New composite materials are very durable, and can even strengthen tooth structure.
  • Tooth-colored fillings are a great solution for many situations. However, for a tooth or teeth with more significant decay and less existing tooth structure, porcelain inlays or onlays or crowns may be recommended.
