Tooth Colored Fillings
16 Oct, 2011
Tooth-colored fillings are made from durable plastics called composite resins. Similar in color and texture to natural teeth, the fillings are less noticeable, and much more attractive, than other types of fillings.
There are advantages to these fillings because composite resins are tooth-colored and they look more natural than other filling materials. You can smile, talk, and eat with confidence. In addition, tooth-colored fillings are compatible with dental sealants. A tooth can be filled and sealed at the same time to prevent further decay.
You can take care of a tooth-colored filling the same way you take care of your teeth regularly. Brush, floss, and visit your dentist. Any filling will last longer with good oral hygiene. Dr. E. John Moreno regularly check the fillings for color change, leakage, or unusual wear and inform you of the need for repair or replacement.
