Unlike traditional metal fillings, which are made of silver amalgam and can be easily seen when you smile or speak, tooth-colored fillings are carefully matched to the shade of your natural teeth, making them virtually invisible. This means that you can restore your oral health and protect your teeth without anyone even knowing you had a dental procedure.
Tooth-colored fillings offer several benefits over traditional metal fillings. They are less invasive, as less of the tooth needs to be removed in order to place the filling. They are also less likely to cause sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, as the resin material does not conduct heat in the same way as metal fillings.
