Beyond cosmetic: There are many other advantages to Tooth-Colored Restorations
In some cases, cosmetic treatments can blur the lines between restorative and cosmetic. Here at our Thousand Oaks dental practice we employ mercury free dentistry when restoring our patients’ smiles as it looks better and is better for our patients. Many people still have silver/mercury fillings or restorations in their mouths from years past and we recommend replacing these fillings with tooth-colored restorations for two reasons: amalgam is not pleasing to the eye, and it can also weaken the structure of the tooth.
There are many other benefits to tooth-colored restorations including:
- Superior fit to the natural tooth
- Can replace more of the tooth structure while remaining strong
- Tooth-coloured resin contains fluoride which prevents decay
- The resin wears like natural teeth and does not require placement at the gum line, which is healthier for your gums!
