Tooth-colored fillings are superior for dental health reasons because unlike metal fillings of the past, tooth colored fillings:
- Contain no toxic materials, making them completely safe.
- Will not warp as a result of temperature variations like the metal fillings.
- Tooth colored fillings require much less removal of tooth structure when preparing the tooth for the filling.
- Filling material closely matches your natural tooth color leaving a better aesthetic appearance.
- Tooth colored fillings are bonded to the tooth structure making the entire tooth stronger unlike metal fillings.
