Do tooth-colored fillings look natural?

At Meadow Creek Family Dentistry, we choose tooth-colored composite resin as the material for fillings at Meadow Creek Family Dentistry because of its versatility and natural appearance. For these reasons, composite filling material is also perfect for cosmetic dental bonding to correct dental imperfections.

If you have older silver fillings, you’ve probably noticed that they have darkened and discolored over time. They may even appear to have pulled away somewhat from your natural tooth. The result is an unsightly, noticeable blemish in your smile.

Tooth-colored composite fillings offer several advantages over older materials. First, modern composite fillings are much more durable than “white” fillings made decades ago, so they withstand more wear and tear. Second, when placing a filling, we don’t need to compromise a lot of healthy tooth structure for a durable repair. Finally, composite fillings can be shaded and shaped to perfectly match your natural tooth so even you will not be able to detect where your tooth meets the repair.
