Composite White Fillings in Dallas
Forget about metal fillings! Tooth colored fillings are aesthetically advanced dental fillings that perfectly match the color of your natural teeth. At DNA Dental, we offer these natural looking fillings to our Dallas, Texas dental patients. With the popularity of a bright and white smile, it’s no surprises that our patients want tooth-colored fillings.
About Tooth-Colored Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite resins, provide a stable structure for small to mid-size fillings. They can be used on front or back teeth and are a good choice for individuals who want to have fillings that look more natural than that of amalgam ones. If bacteria have worn away a small portion of your tooth, you may need a filling. Dental fillings will build the tooth up and restore its natural function. Tooth-colored fillings are attractive since they portray a convincingly natural look. They are also healthy since they are composed of a highly biocompatible material.
The process of placing this type of filling is generally going to take longer than that of a metal filling. This is because tooth-colored fillings must be kept clean and dry while the cavity is being filled. After the filling process, it’s important to note that you should care strictly for your dental fillings and your natural teeth. Continue to brush and floss regularly. Keep regular exams and cleanings.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding in Dallas is the use of a tooth-colored resin with adhesives and a curing light. Tooth bonding is used for many reasons including:
- To repair chipped or cracked teeth
- For decayed teeth
- To close spaces between teeth
- To make the teeth look longer
- To change the shape or color of teeth
It can be used as a cosmetic alternative to fillings, or to protect a part of the tooth’s root that has been exposed as the gums receded due to gum disease. There are two types of dental bonding and our cosmetic dentist can evaluate your teeth and gums and determine the best match for you.
About Composite Restoration
When it comes to the safest and most conservative way of restoring fractured, decayed or worn teeth, composite restoration is the answer. They are tooth-colored filling materials that are made of plastic and glass used by dentists to seal deep breaks or fillings. After removing any decay and preparing the tooth, the restoration is bonded into or onto the tooth, layer by layer, with the use of a strong LED light to set the material.
