Types of tooth coloured Fillings
When treating your cavities, a dentist has to choose a material to fill the cleaned up space. Until recently, metallic materials were commonly in use and believed to be the ‘strongest’. However, today, dental technology has evolved tremendously and with the help of a process called ‘bonding’, dentists can smoothly and naturally fill it up with natural coloured materials, a synthetic resin bonded chemically with the tooth surface. There are different types of white materials that can be used to fill up decay and wear of your teeth.
- Composite resins
- Glass ionomers cements
Advantages of Going All-Natural
When it comes to dental treatments, metallic materials are on their way out and for a good reason. Natural-coloured restorations offers many advantages:
- The most obvious, popular benefit is the ‘metal-free’ look. The different shades available to match the tooth colour, making it look completely natural and almost invisible. Dentists can perfectly match the mixture to your natural colour.
- They are more enduring, too. They last longer, they cause no extra damage (like metallic materials) to the existing tooth structure.
- They are the most comfortable in short and long term. Composite materials are associated with less pain and sensitivity post-surgery. They fit well as they are minimally invasive.
- They provide the most protection as they can be ‘bonded’ to the tooth, causing less micro leakage.
- Prepping is easier and less invasive, requiring less of your natural tooth structure to be removed.
- They strengthen the dentition, protecting it from deeper bacterial invasion and provide long-lasting protection.
