Why Our Aurora, CO Dentist Recommends Tooth-Colored Fillings

We are constantly amazed at how much dentistry has advanced in a short time with new and updated technology, materials, and new approaches for doing things. There are so many options for improving the look and health of your smile, and today, even a dental filling can enhance your appearance.

Today it’s easy to blur the line between aesthetic and restorative dentistry. Every day, our patients in South Aurora benefit from natural-looking fillings that resemble tooth enamel and are virtually invisible when placed on your tooth

Tooth-Colored Fillings for an Invisible Repair

Tooth-colored filling material is a unique blend of glass and resin particles, and the result is an appearance that is very similar to the translucency of tooth enamel. To fill a tooth, our 80016 dentist first removes the cavity, carefully matches the shade of the composite to your teeth, and expertly builds the filling directly on your tooth.

The result is a long-lasting tooth filling that is undetectable and will give you many years of service. Since composite fillings create a virtually invisible repair, the material is commonly used for dental bonding to corrects aesthetic flaws like chipped and broken teeth.

A Strong and Durable Tooth Repair 

The lifespan of a tooth-colored composite filling is 5-7 years if you care for them properly. Diligent brushing and flossing help prevent cavities and gum disease, and six-month dental checkups and exams allow your dentist to make sure your fillings are in good shape.
