Tooth-Colored Fillings in Boynton Beach
At ICP Dental Group, putting in dental fillings is one of the more common services that we provide our patients. It’s inevitable that some people may neglect to brush their teeth frequently or fail to get a regular professional teeth cleaning at our clinic. As a result, they get cavities. And that’s why we put in fillings. The fillings are used so that bacteria don’t get inside your tooth and cause further damage. In our Boynton Beach clinic, you also have the option to choose fillings that have the same color as your natural teeth.
It is the same material we use to restore a tooth that’s been chipped or decayed, and with it we can restore your tooth to its former appearance and function.
Why Choose Tooth Colored Fillings?
Usually, when you need fillings you have a choice between amalgam (silver) fillings and tooth colored fillings. Not all people will go for tooth colored fillings. After all, silver fillings are strong and very durable, and they’re less expensive. Many insurance companies may also require you to pay an extra fee when you opt for tooth-colored fillings.
But some people do object to the mercury contained in silver fillings. They also don’t like the fact that the amalgam fillings are very noticeable. They are concerned about what others will think when they realize they use fillings on their teeth.
That’s the main reason why so many of our patients choose tooth colored fillings. They closely resemble the color and appearance of natural teeth, so they’re hardly noticeable at all. People can talk to you and won’t notice the glint of metal in your teeth.
These tooth-colored fillings were first introduced back in the 1960s, and numerous technological developments have occurred since then. That’s why here at ICP Dental Group we use only the best composite materials. These fillings really look completely natural, as we take care to get the shape and color right.
What’s more, the fillings bond to the structure of the tooth chemically. That means we don’t have to put in pins, grooves, or slots in your healthy teeth just so the fillings can be retained mechanically. The composite resin we use can harden in a matter of seconds, unlike other materials, which may take days to harden. If there’s any tooth sensitivity to the composite resin we use, the reaction is usually brief and minimal. And if they get damaged, we can always repair them easily.
