Tooth-Colored Fillings in Wakefield
If you’ve ever been treated with metal fillings, you know how they affect your smile. Metal fillings have a dark, unattractive color that stands out against a white smile. Beyond this, there are other including sensitivity to temperature changes, and lack of support for a tooth’s natural structure. As a result, patients have partial functionality, and fillings may develop cracks at a later point.
Thankfully, there’s a new standard that provides both cosmetic and restorative benefits over what tooth-colored fillings offer.
The Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings
The primary benefit of tooth-colored fillings is that they can be shaded to blend with your smile’s natural color. As a result, only you and our team ever know about your treatment. Tooth-colored fillings support the tooth’s remaining structure deterring breakage and insulating against changes in temperature. This makes tooth-colored fillings a more conservative solution overall because patients keep more of their natural tooth. The more tooth retained, the better teeth you’ll have in the future.
