Dental fillings are an important part of oral health care. They fill in cavities and prevent them from becoming larger and eventually destroying a tooth, as well as eliminating pain from exposed nerves. Today having unsightly metal silver colored fillings is not necessary thanks to tooth colored fillings. Tooth colored fillings from Southern Dental Care can repair and strengthen your teeth while keeping your smile beautiful, that is what makes us the most trusted office for Marrero dental fillings in the greater New Orleans area.

Tooth colored fillings, sometimes called white fillings, are made of a composite resin that bonds to the teeth. Unlike metal fillings, they fit cavities no matter how big or small the cavity. With a metal filling, the cavity has to be enlarged if it is too small for the filling. Tooth colored fillings do not require doing damage to healthy enamel in this way. They are painted into the cavity in layers, and cured to a strong finish.

The shade of tooth colored fillings can be chosen to match your teeth as closely as possible. The material is similar to that used for composite veneers or cosmetic bonding. the goal in shading is to make your fillings invisible and undetectable on your teeth. Tooth colored fillings can be used for front or back teeth. They work for small and medium sized cavities. Teeth that have more severe damage may need a crown, which is made of similar material but completely replaces the damaged portion of a tooth.

Many people are concerned about the mercury content of metal fillings, but tooth colored fillings contain no mercury and are safe not only for you, but for the environment. They are also usually more comfortable because they do not cause sensitivity when contacting metal eating utensils the way that metal fillings sometimes do. Because they are applied to the tooth in layers and cured with light to strengthen the bond, they don’t fall out like metal fillings can.
