Are Tooth Colored Fillings the Best Option?
Most people today are aiming for a bright white smile. This has made tooth colored fillings (resin) a very popular option when it comes to having decay filled. Many of our patients want tooth colored fillings, but have questions about their effectiveness. The truth of the matter is that tooth colored fillings are just as effective if not more effective than amalgam (metal) fillings.
How Can I Tell if I Need a Filling?
Fillings are necessary when tooth decay is present. It is usually hard to know when you have tooth decay without seeing your dentist. If you have tooth decay to the point that you can see it with your own eyes, or to the point that it is causing significant pain, there is likely fairly significant damage that will need to be repaired.
