If you are looking to enhance your smile, be sure to have your teeth checked for any cavities you may have. A cavity form when the tooth enamel of a tooth is eaten away at to the point a hole has formed in a tooth. If you are looking for a dental filling to fix the cavity, tooth-colored fillings can be used. Improve the look of your dental fillings with tooth-colored fillings.

A tooth-colored filling is an alternative dental filling treatment beyond traditional dental amalgams. Whereas traditional amalgams use a combination of metals bound together by mercury, tooth-colored fillings are mercury-free. In addition, tooth-colored fillings do not leave a visible metallic look to them as they can be shaded and matched to the natural color of your teeth.

Tooth-colored fillings such as composites are highly effective for smaller cavities that amalgams cannot reach. In addition, they can be reapplied multiple times over without the need to remove the initial filling. If you are in need of cavity treatment and wish to retain the natural look of your teeth, a tooth-colored filling should be used.
