Tooth-colored fillings are now used more often than amalgam or gold fillings, most likely for cosmetic reasons. In a society focused on white, bright smiles, people tend to want fillings that blend with the natural color of their teeth.
A composite resin or tooth-colored filling is a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural. They provide good durability and resistance to fractures in small-to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. Dr. Tab Bingham will use the best composite material and state-of-the-art curing lights to set the composite material quickly and to get you in and out quickly.
Ultimately, the best dental filling is no dental filling. Prevention is the best medicine. You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases simply by:
- Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
- Flossing daily.
- Eating a balanced diet.
- Visiting the dentist regularly.
