Composite Fillings – Tooth-Colored Fillings
The Natural, Advanced Solution for Tooth Fillings
Fillings are a common treatment for countless individuals regardless of age or oral health habits. After all, cavities can occur for several different reasons. But what some patients don’t realize is that all types of fillings aren’t created equal. At James Bieneman, DDS, we offer composite, or tooth-colored fillings, as one of our treatments for cavities. And, should you speak with Dr. Bieneman and determine this is the best treatment for you, you can enjoy the several benefits these composite fillings have to offer.
What are Composite Fillings?
Composite fillings are tooth colored fillings made from durable plastics that closely resemble natural teeth.
Typically, this tooth filling material is used in place of traditional metal fillings, which aren’t as aesthetically appealing or beneficial for patients.
Benefits of Tooth Colored Fillings
In addition to looking more natural, tooth colored fillings offer several other distinct benefits. Just some of these benefits include:
- Compatible With Sealants – Sealants are used to prevent decay and because composite fillings are compatible with sealants, your dentist can use both to keep your smile looking great.
- Bonds to Teeth – While other fillings simply fill in your teeth, tooth colored fillings bond to your teeth. This prevents further breakage and protects teeth from temperature changes.
