Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings

Whiter smiles are brighter smiles. Today most dentists offer tooth-colored composite resins as an alternative to dark amalgam to restore cavities. I’m Dr. Jeffrey Allen, a Pella cosmetic dentist, and I offer my patients tooth-colored fillings so they can retain a white, healthy, natural-looking smile.
A tooth-colored filling is a synthetic material that will not dehydrate or dissolve. These fillings are custom colored to match your tooth enamel, so when a filling is placed, it is practically undetectable. This is beneficial, particularly on front teeth that show when you smile.
While composite resin fillings are my primary choice, in some cases, an amalgam filling is the best material to use. At your visit, we can discuss which type of filling material would work best for your unique situation.

If you’re looking for an attractive alternative to dark fillings, call my Pella dentist office at (641)628-1121. I also offer tooth-colored ceramic or zirconia crowns I provide cosmetic, preventative, and restorative dentistry to patients in Pella, Lynnville, Oskaloosa and surrounding areas.
