Solid Repairs with Tooth-Colored Fillings

 

For decades, dentists would treat cavities with amalgam fillings, which are made of a variety of metals and have a dark, unattractive color. However, when you come to Washington Dental Associates or Smile More Dentistry, we’ll only use tooth-colored fillings (also known as composite fillings) to repair the damage. We can also replace your unsightly metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings for a more uniform, seamless look.

The Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

Using tooth-colored fillings will not only make your teeth look better, but also strengthen them. Tooth-colored fillings bond with the tooth structure, making them more supportive. They also won’t change shape or crack over time in the way that metal fillings can. Plus, since they require less preparation, they’re a more conservative option when compared with metal fillings.
