What are the benefits of tooth-colored fillings over metal fillings?

Metal amalgam fillings have been the material dentists have used over the years to restore teeth affected by tooth decay. At Ohana Dental, we choose to use tooth-colored fillings for our patients for several reasons.

One of the benefits our patients love best is that tooth-colored fillings in Midland Park blend seamlessly with their teeth and complement their smiles.

However, there are also other advantages to choosing tooth-colored, composite resin fillings, such as:

  • They preserve more of your natural tooth since we don't have to remove as much tooth structure to place them.
  • Direct bonding to your tooth adds strength and longevity.
  • Composite material doesn't react to temperature like metal does, which helps to reduce its breakdown over time.

Composite resin material is so versatile that our dentists also use it during a procedure called dental bonding to eliminate small cosmetic issues like gaps between teeth, tooth discoloration, fractured or chipped teeth, and size or shape discrepancies. Dental bonding is a quick and affordable way to make cosmetic enhancements to your smile.
