Plano Tooth-Colored Fillings
Many people prefer tooth-colored fillings that blend in naturally with their teeth. White composite fillings allow you to laugh or smile with confidence that the fillings are concealed. What are some other advantages of tooth-colored fillings?
Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings
- Strong – where amalgam fillings weaken the teeth, the composite bonds to the tooth and makes the tooth less likely to break later on.
- Comfortable – since they have no metal, tooth-colored fillings insulate your teeth against the cold.
- Dependable – tooth-colored fillings last for many years. They actually help seal the teeth against recurrent decay.
- Mercury-Free – the composite does not contain any mercury—a substance in amalgam fillings that many people consider harmful.
