Also known as composite fillings, tooth-colored fillings are used to restore teeth in cases of damage or decay. At our Chesterfield office, our fillings are made from high-quality composite resin. The resin contains no metal and consists of dental-grade plastic and glass particles. The versatile composite resin is used to repair cavities, chips, cracks, and fractures in your teeth. It is also used to repair worn or discolored enamel. In cosmetic procedures, it can be used to correct uneven or irregularly shaped teeth.
Our dentists can shade the tooth-colored resin to match the color of your surrounding tooth for a seamless restoration. Because the resin chemically bonds to the structure of your tooth, it can help strengthen it and add additional support for your filling. This allows our dentists to preserve more of your natural tooth structure and achieve a more conservative restoration.
Yes, tooth-colored fillings are safe. Our dentist recommends composite cavity fillings for patients over the age of six.
With great at-home care and regular dental checkups at our Chesterfield office, your tooth-colored filling will last many years before needing to be repaired or replaced. The composite resin allows.
