What Are Tooth Colored Fillings?

Cavities occur when bacteria infect the inside of a tooth. The frequency that infections occur depends on oral hygiene, health, and genetic factors. Cavities typically begin as a white spot on the enamel (microcavities). Routine teeth cleaning helps prevent new micro-cavities and may slow the spread of existing cavities. However, once the bacteria breaches the tooth’s enamel and infects the dentin it may reach the root and cause pain in the tooth or jaw. Once that occurs a dentist will remove the infected portion of the tooth. If sufficient bone structure remains the dentist will place a filling to seal the hole and prevent further infection. The filling can me made from either silver amalgam or a tooth-colored composite resin. If the decay from a cavity is severe your dentist may need to extract the tooth and place a dental implant.

Benefits of Silver Amalgam Fillings

  • Economical
  • Stronger in back teeth
  • Efficient for small cavities

The main drawback to silver fillings in front teeth is that they may interfere with a beautiful smile.

Benefits of Composite Resin Tooth Colored Fillings

Instead of using unsightly silver amalgam filling to seal your cavity, SEDA Dental offers durable composite resin filling that matches your tooth’s natural color. Because these fillings require smaller holes and less removal of the tooth, composite fillings are able to restore the tooth to most of its original shape, leaving it stronger and less susceptible to breaking. They’re even good for the environment: Since composite fillings don’t contain any mercury, there are no hazardous metal waste.

Most importantly of all, tooth colored fillings blend in with the natural color of your existing teeth and they help enhance your smile!
