Tooth-Colored Fillings

Needing a filling is rarely something that people eagerly anticipate. Hearing that you need a filling can be a big disappointment, especially if you consider the amount of time that it’s going to take. However, where people also get frustrated with the idea of fillings is that they often think that they’ll have to have a metallic gold or silver material placed in their mouth, as this was commonly the old way to have this treatment finished. Luckily, this isn’t the case anymore. Instead, you can get a tooth-colored filling here at CDIC. It’s our goal to provide you with the secure oral health that you need, while also keeping your smile looking great.

Why Would I Choose Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Your oral health is incredibly important. But not only is it vital that you have healthy teeth and gums, we also understand that you likely want to have a beautiful smile with pearly white teeth, as well. In the past, cavities would be filled with what is called an amalgam metal. This metal would likely either be gold or silver, as these two materials were easy to mold and shape to your teeth. In addition, amalgam was incredibly sturdy and allowed for you to go on living your life like normal.

Unfortunately, amalgam was not ideal for physical aesthetics. Many people don’t like the idea of having a shiny gold or silver filling in their tooth, as this takes away attention from the rest of their physical features. Luckily, tooth-colored fillings look just like your natural teeth and no one will even know that you’ve had any type of dental work completed.

Are Tooth Colored Fillings As Stable As Amalgam Alternatives?

Some people fear that these new tooth-colored fillings will not be as strong as traditional amalgam alternatives. However, this is not the case. You can rest assured that your tooth-colored filling will be just as sturdy as any other type of filling and, as long you keep up with your daily oral maintenance, your smile will be strong for years to come.

Here at CDIC, we want our patients to have the strongest oral health possible. The foundation and strength of your teeth and gums are vital if you want to have a lasting healthy life. If you need a filling, or if it’s been a while since you last visited the dentist, give us a call today at our Huntington Beach office (714) 968-2527; our Brea office (714) 257-0330; or our Placentia office (714) 577-9070. We’d be happy to schedule your appointment and talk to you more about your options for tooth-colored fillings.
