Tooth-Colored Fillings

TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS

When a decayed tooth can be fully restored with a filling, the dentists at Cooper Moss Advanced Dentistry recommend using a tooth-colored composite resin material. This material has significant advantages over other filling materials by allowing the patient to retain more of his or her natural tooth structure and strength. Additionally, the adhesive bond between the composite and the tooth decreases the opportunity for future decay, and the healthy appearance of the tooth is retained because composite resins can be matched to the tooth’s natural color. Composite fillings are also mercury-free.
