What is a tooth-colored filling?
A tooth-colored filling is just like any other dental tooth filling. A tooth-colored filling will treat teeth damaged by decay and restore the tooth to its original function and shape. A tooth-colored filling will blend seamlessly with your natural teeth as tooth-colored fillings are made with composite resin, which matches the natural tooth color. These are safe and durable and can make you feel more confident than if you were to get silver or gold fillings.
How long does a tooth-colored filling last?
Tooth-colored fillings can last for about ten years. However, the lifespan of a dental tooth filling will vary depending on the care and location of the tooth filling. With good care and regular check-ups, and proper placement, tooth-colored fillings can provide more support to the tooth that has been affected. Be aware that it is common to experience tooth pain after filling the tooth has been done, but these symptoms don’t last long.
Are tooth-colored fillings more expensive?
You may be wondering how much a tooth-colored filling is. Tooth filling cost is going to vary depending on the severity and location where it is needed. A tooth-colored filling can be more expensive than other types of dental tooth filling options. That’s because of the higher quality material and strength of a tooth-colored filling.
