What Are Fillings?

A dental filling is a dental restoration used to protect and strengthen a tooth that has been damaged by a cavity or decay. When The Dental Den of Allen team fits you for a filling, we will first remove any decay, clean the entire affected area, and insert a filling material to keep the natural shape and structure of your tooth.

How Do Tooth-Colored Fillings Differ From Traditional Fillings?

Traditional silver fillings are extremely durable and long-lasting, but they are also highly noticeable. For this reason, many people do not want to get fillings in their front teeth, where others may see them.

Tooth-colored fillings, on the other hand, are made from composite resin. This means they can be color-matched to the natural shade of your teeth. They offer several benefits that can help restore your smile, as they are…

  • Natural-looking
  • Seamless
  • Perfect for patients with metal allergies
  • Easy to place

Many patients find it hard to tell the difference between their tooth-colored fillings and the rest of their natural teeth.

Who Should Opt for Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings are a fantastic option for patients with small to moderate-sized cavities. They can improve your self-esteem and help you feel more confident about smiling and laughing with a filling.

However, tooth-colored fillings are not ideal for large cavities, as they can chip or wear down over time. They are also prone to coffee stains, red wine stains, and yellow stains from tobacco use. They also last from three to 10 years, which is not as long as metal fillings can last when cared for properly.

A tooth-colored filling helps protect your teeth against further decay and damage without the embarrassment that comes from a traditional metal filling.
