The Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

We know how upsetting finding out that you have a dental cavity can be. Luckily treating a cavity is fairly simple these days. Plus, the options that we offer to restore the tooth are effective and long lasting. This is where Dr. Mitchell Pasenkoff a restorative dentist from Norfolk, MA can help. Here are some of the benefits of placing a tooth-colored filling, 

It Blends Right In

You won’t have to worry that anyone is going to notice your dental fillings when it’s made from composite resin, a tooth-colored material that is designed to match the shade and color of your tooth. Resin comes in multiple shades and Dr. Mitchell of Norfolk, MA will choose the right shade before applying it to the tooth. Once the filling is applied and hardened into place you won’t even notice that it’s there. 

These Restorations Last Years

Once you get your tooth treated you want to make sure that you don’t have to deal with this issue again. While dental fillings won’t last forever, composite resin is surprisingly durable. With the proper care, they can last for years before needing to be replaced. Make sure that you brush twice a day, floss daily and continue to visit us for routine checkups every six months to make sure that your filling is intact. Proper dental care means that your dental work will last longer. 

Preserve More of Your Tooth

Composite resin bonds with the tooth once it’s applied and hardened into place. As a result, we won’t have to remove as much of the tooth’s enamel in order to make room for the filling, as we would with other types of fillings. This provides a more conservative treatment that ensures that the tooth stays strong and healthy for years to come. 

Quick Treatment

We know the last thing you want to do is take time out of your schedule to sit in the dentist’s chair; however, this problem must be treated before it gets worse. Luckily, placing a tooth-colored filling is a quick and easy procedure. Once we remove the decay it can take as little as 30 minutes to place, harden and polish the dental filling.
