What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings are made of high-quality composite resin, which is a mixture of glass and plastic that can be custom-shaded to match your existing tooth enamel. It can perfectly fill your cavity in New York without compromising the appearance of your beautiful smile. There are no metal materials involved in the slightest, so if you have an allergy or sensitivity to metal, you won’t have to worry about that one bit.

What Are the Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings Compared to Metal Fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings offer a multitude of benefits besides just being able to seamlessly blend in with the rest of your smile. They are also a more conservative treatment. With metal fillings, more of the natural tooth structure has to be removed to make room. Composite resin material does not require that a large section of enamel be removed, which allows you to keep more of your natural tooth.

Additionally, tooth-colored fillings are safer for your pearly whites. Traditional metal fillings tend to expand and contract when exposed to hot or cold stimuli. This constant size change inside the tooth places a lot of pressure on it, causing it to fracture and eventually break. Composite resin fillings will not expand and contract with temperature changes, so you won’t have to worry about a thing!
