What are tooth-colored fillings made of?

If you have tooth decay, you’d probably prefer a tooth-colored filling in Garland, TX over silver. Tooth-colored fillings blend with your smile and are virtually undetectable.

If you have an area of decay on your tooth, your Garland, TX dentist numbs that location and gently clears away the cavity. Then we seal the tooth with a quality tooth-colored filling.

Tooth-colored fillings are made of composite resin, a combination of safe materials, including plastic, that adheres easily to your teeth. It is durable and lasting, allowing you to enjoy your meals without concern.

Though tooth-colored fillings are excellent for treating cavities, it is better to have no tooth decay at all. The best ways to lower your risks include:

  • Regular dental exams and teeth cleanings twice per year
  • Brushing and flossing at least twice per day
  • Cutting down on sugary and acidic snacks and beverages
  • Never going to sleep with debris on your teeth

The above practices also lower your risks for gum disease, which can put your teeth at risk for loss and even threaten your wellness.
