Do you wish to remove and replace your old metal fillings because it makes your smile quite unsightly? Well, this could be a good idea. People who are into smile makeovers or are still planning to undergo a smile makeover seldom realise that improving their smile can start by getting their cavities filled with tooth-coloured fillings.
White fillings also referred to as composite resin fillings, have the potential to improve not just the integrity of your tooth, but also its aesthetics. The repair provides a natural-looking result, without the presence of silver or gold when you flash a smile. Because of what composite fillings are made of, your tooth can look better than the original.
What Tooth-Coloured Fillings Has to Offer
Back in the day, silver amalgam was the only option for filling teeth. However, when the tooth-coloured fillings were introduced, many dental patients decided to replace their old restorations. The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) reported that the amalgam that was once used in 68% of all fillings in Australia in the late 1980’s had fallen to less than 30% by the late 1990’s.
Thus, those patients who want to go for natural-looking restorations don’t need to opt for more expensive options such as dental crowns. White fillings have saved the day, and their pockets, too. Though the first composite resin material was not sturdy enough to be used on back teeth and tended to wear down easily; today, with vast improvements in materials, composite resins are known for being a safe and effective material for fillings.
The top advantages of tooth-coloured fillings include the following:
- Aesthetics – white fillings are tinted to resemble the precise shade of your surrounding teeth; thus, it produces a seamless-looking smile.
- Preserves the natural tooth structure – requires less of your tooth structure to be removed to place the composite solution.
- Doesn’t react to temperature changes – white fillings don’t contract or expand when you sip on cold drinks or eat hot foods; thus, they don’t negatively affect the integrity of the tooth structure.
- Strengthens tooth and improves its shape – the bonding material strengthens the original tooth and improves the form by shaping to enhance the tooth.
- Safer option – White fillings contains no mercury, thereby eliminating the need for using mercury that are required for silver fillings.
