Natural Colored Fillings in Rochester NY
When you need new dental fillings, you have many options to choose from. Dentists use all types of materials from silver amalgam to gold fillings when they repair your teeth. Though silver fillings represent the cheapest option and have been widely used for many years, patients increasingly choose natural colored fillings in Rochester, NY.
At Dr. David K Skeels office we employ specialists with training and experience in tooth decay. Our team matches the color of your teeth almost exactly,and we can even replace your existing silver fillings with white fillings.
The Benefits of Natural Color
You reap many benefits when you choose natural colored fillings over silver. White fillings offer you the following benefits:
- They match the color of your teeth.
Most people prefer white fillings because they blend in with the existing color of teeth, so you won't have to worry about hiding the inside of your mouth.
- They bond chemically to the tooth.
Instead of having to include pins, slots, or grooves to keep the filling in place, the materials bond directly to your tooth.
- They don't require extensive removal of tooth structure.
Due to the chemical bonding process, your dentist removes less of your tooth's surface to make room for the filling.
- They harden in seconds.
Other filling materials may require days for the fillings to set completely, but the composite materials in white fillings harden in seconds.
- They eliminate pain and lessen sensitivity.
White fillings cause only minimal tooth sensitivity or pain after treatment.
