WHAT ARE DENTAL FILLINGS?
Dental fillings are small bits of composite resin or other materials used by dentists to fix a damaged or decayed tooth. In the case of cavities, the decayed part of the tooth is removed, then a filling is added to “fill” the area that was removed. Dental fillings can also help restore cracked, broken, or worn-down teeth.
Several factors affect the quality, longevity, and expense of dental restorations, including:
- Components used in the filling material
- Amount of tooth structure removed/remaining
- Where and how the filling is placed
- Chewing load the tooth will have to handle
- Length and number of visits needed to prepare & adjust the tooth
Prior to starting treatment, we will review your options and assist you in selecting the best one for your particular case. For cavities or cracked teeth, New Bremen Smiles utilizes ‘tooth colored’ composite fillings, which are healthier for your teeth than traditional ‘silver’ filling, and they blend in with your tooth color better for a more natural look. If you have old amalgam ‘silver’ type fillings, we can also change them out for the new style, giving you a younger, healthier smile. The longevity of your repair is between 10 to 15 years, and in many cases much longer. A healthy diet, regular examinations, brushing and flossing can all factor into your oral health, so taking the proper steps to maintain your smile is crucial.
COMPOSITE FILLINGS: AN ALL-WHITE COLOR FOR YOUR TEETH
Traditionally, various different materials have been used to produce oral fillings. Gold, silver, and plastic fillings have all been utilized with varying degrees of success– nevertheless, here at New Bremen Smiles, we use tooth-colored composite resin fillings, which have the benefit of matching the tooth’s natural color, and they last much longer than other filling materials.
