However, no matter how diligent you are with your health care routine, sometimes, bad things happen. Fortunately, with tooth-colored fillings, you don't have to worry about missing out on these experiences.
In dentistry there is a thing called composite resin fillings, or as they are commonly called “tooth-colored fillings”, which offer a very real and natural appearance that make it very difficult for just about anyone to notice. But, those silver fillings – everyone can see those coming from a mile away.
Advantages to Tooth-Colored Fillings
Adding to the advantage column of plus's for tooth-colored fillings is that they are more durable. Which means they can now be used on the back surfaces of your teeth when you chew as opposed to just in the front. The resin bonds better with your tooth's enamel. It is now also supporting the structure much better than it was.
With the tooth-colored fillings you have some options, you can have your old silver fillings replaced at any time and replace them with the tooth-colored and of course you can always opt to have the tooth colored composite resin fillings when you might need new ones. Cavities need to be filled as soon as possible because if left untreated, advanced tooth decay sets in and then it just causes a ton of oral complications as well as tooth loss.
