Choosing Tooth-coloured Fillings for your TeethMore people have been treated with dental fillings to prevent and stop the development of decay on teeth. Nowadays, tooth-coloured fillings are becoming more ideal than the coloured ones. Primarily because this kind of fillings are natural looking so you can at least retain the actual shade of your teeth even though you’ve already undergone a treatment.

Comparing Tooth-coloured Fillings to Others

Before, white fillings are considered less long lasting compared to amalgam fillings. Currently, new materials for fillings have been introduced and they are practically as good as amalgam. Also, these materials are proving to be very effective.

Your white fillings can last depending on their location in your mouth, your bite and, of course, the way you take care of it. Your dentist will inform you how long your tooth-coloured fillings can last.

Fillings can be replaced when your dentist have decided to. If this happens, you can ask your dentist to have it replaced with a white filling. Back then, white fillings are not suitable to be treated on back teeth due to their inefficiency, but since these fillings have improved, your dentist can now also use white fillings to fill them.
