When you’re not happy with your teeth, it certainly doesn’t add to your confidence. But what if we told you there’s a way to restore your teeth with natural teeth fillings that will make you smile more often and boost your self esteem?

That’s right - long gone are the days of metallic fillings stealing your smile’s glow. These days, natural teeth fillings are all the rage, and for good reason; tooth colored fillings provide a realistic look to your tooth’s restoration. This way, no one will even know you had dental work done other than you and your dentist. 

But what other benefits are associated with natural teeth fillings? Well, for one, traditional metal fillings often cause further damage to teeth, but that isn’t a risk with tooth colored fillings. Secondly, these cosmetic fillings, aka “indirect fillings,” usually require less of the tooth to be removed for installation compared to traditional metal fillings.

In addition, natural teeth fillings are also durable so they typically last longer than other types of fillings. That’s because these tooth colored inlays and onlays are created especially for you in a dental lab. Once they arrive at the dental office, then your dentist will schedule an appointment to bond your tooth colored fillings to your tooth or teeth. This allows for your dentist to keep as much of your original healthy tooth or teeth as possible. 

Of course, before opting for these types of restorations, you’ll want to make an appointment to see a dentist at Carolina Family Dental. Feel free to contact us at any time to make an appointment and we’ll get you started on your journey to a healthier smile!
