Tooth-colored fillings offer several benefits over the metal amalgam material used in the past—the first being aesthetics.
Composite resin can be customized to match your tooth, so your new filling blends seamlessly into your smile. No more flashes of silver or grey when you laugh or smile when you choose tooth-colored fillings in Orlando to restore tooth decay.
Since composite is bonded directly to your tooth, you also won't have to endure a breakdown of your restoration due to temperature changes in the mouth. Metal naturally expands and contracts with temperature changes, which can pull your filling away from your tooth and allow bacteria back in to cause further damage.
Composite material doesn't require your Orlando dentist to remove as much tooth structure to place your filling. This means that a tooth-colored composite filling preserves more of your natural tooth, which is always the goal for your dentist.
Overall, tooth-colored fillings offer an excellent way to remove tooth decay and repair your tooth with a durable and aesthetically-pleasing restoration.
