Cosmetic Dentistry | Tooth Colored RestorationModern dental materials used in tooth-colored restorations are superior products created from composite resin and nearly indiscernible from normal teeth. The restorations are less costly alternatives to full crowns and preserve more of the actual tooth structure. The material bonds to the tooth making it more fracture resistant than other products such as metal fillings. Metal fillings are not bonded to the tooth, they are simply packed tightly into the cavity. The cavity must be in good shape to hold the metal filling which means that more of the healthy tooth must be removed.
Soft and moldable tooth colored restorations can be matched to the same color, texture and translucency of your existing teeth making the restoration nearly invisible.
Tooth-colored restorations are the ideal choice of material when filling a cavity as the composite resin blends in with the color of your natural teeth. This material not only looks good, offering an aesthetically pleasing smile, it restores the form and function of the tooth.
