Are tooth-colored fillings better than amalgam fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite fillings, offer several advantages over traditional amalgam fillings. They are aesthetically appealing, as they can be matched to the natural color of your teeth, making them virtually invisible. Additionally, composite fillings bond directly to the tooth structure, preserving more of the natural tooth compared to amalgam fillings. They also require less tooth preparation, reducing the risk of fractures.

What is the process for getting a tooth-colored filling?


The process of getting a tooth-colored filling is a multi-step process. First, local anesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort during the procedure. The decayed or damaged portion of the tooth will be removed, and the remaining tooth structure will be prepared to receive the filling. A tooth-colored composite resin material is then applied in layers, shaped, and hardened using a special light. Once the filling is in place, our team will make any necessary adjustments to ensure proper bite and comfort.

Do I need a filling or a crown?


Fillings are typically used to repair small to medium-sized cavities where the decayed portion of the tooth can be removed and replaced with a composite filling. On the other hand, a crown is typically recommended for more extensive tooth damage or when the tooth structure is weakened and requires additional support. Crowns encase the entire visible portion of the tooth, providing strength and protection. Our team will evaluate your tooth and determine your ideal treatment option based on the severity of the damage, location, and other factors specific to your case.
