Gresham patients in need of fillings may find themselves wondering about the types of fillings available. As part of our family dentistry services, we help our Gresham patients find the right type of filling for their cosmetic dental needs. One of the types of fillings offered at Gresham Family Dentistry is tooth-colored fillings. These fillings are commonly made from durable plastics called composite resin. Similar in color and texture to natural teeth, the fillings are less noticeable and more attractive than other types of fillings.
What Are the Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings?
The resin used to make these fillings are tooth-colored, which means they look more natural. The filling becomes bonded with the tooth, which often allows for more conservation of tooth structure than other types of fillings. Another advantage tooth-colored fillings can offer Gresham patients is that they are compatible with dental sealants. Lastly, a tooth can be filled and sealed at the same time to prevent further decay.
What Are the Disadvantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Unfortunately, tooth-colored fillings are not for every tooth. They work best in small-to-medium restorations and for low-stress areas. Tooth-colored fillings also may stain or discolor over time. Our family dentistry services involve making sure our Gresham patients are informed as to what types of fillings will work best for them. We will ensure that you know if a tooth-colored filling could work for you.
Gresham Family Dentistry will always consult with you on the best filling types for you, depending on your particular situation.
