TOOTH COLORED FILLINGS
What is a tooth-colored filling?
They are designed to match the color of your teeth and are known as composites. They look and react like natural teeth. They are used to:
Mimic the natural appearance of tooth structure
Restore teeth that have been fractured or decayed
Cosmetically enhances the color, size, and shape of teeth
How long do tooth colored fillings last?
They are cosmetically appealing, but they can last approximately 5 years when compared to a silver filling that lasts about 10 years. But silver fillings cannot be used in the teeth which come under the smile line, and only tooth-colored fillings are preferred in that area.
How is it done?
It takes longer to place a composite filling when compared to the silver one. The tooth-colored filling requires the area to be dry and clean of saliva while the cavity is being filled.
Are tooth colored fillings better than silver?
They can be used in either front or back teeth whereas silver fillings can only be used in the back teeth
