Repair Damages from Cavities or Decay
Dental fillings are the most common treatment used to repair chipped teeth and damage caused by cavities or tooth decay while maintaining the remaining strong and healthy tooth structure. There are many types of fillings which include metal fillings, silver fillings, amalgam fillings, gold fillings, and tooth colored fillings. All fillings offer the benefit or repairing a slightly damaged tooth. Most dental insurance plans cover fillings as they are preventative treatments that solve the issues of more deterioration of the tooth structure.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Tooth colored fillings are one of the most popular types of fillings requested because they maintain the look of a natural tooth. Tooth colored fillings are often made of composite materials called composite resins. Composite resin fillings look so much like a natural tooth they can even be put in your front teeth without others noticing you have a filling. Many people choose these kinds of fillings in order to avoid drawing attention to their teeth and to keep their teeth looking flawless.
