Columbus, GA cosmetic dentist Dr. Albert Caves uses tooth colored dental fillings to protect teeth and add strength and durability for natural looking results. “White” dental fillings are made of a durable, biocompatible composite resin which comes in a range of tooth colored shades to perfectly match natural teeth. Tooth colored dental fillings have become the standard in modern dentistry.
What is a Dental Fillings
Dental fillings are used as part of a conservative treatment plan aimed at preserving the natural tooth. A dental filling is used when a tooth is weakened because of cracks, chips, breaks, cavities or other reasons. The filling is intended to not just restore strength, but to protect the tooth from future damage or decay.
A tooth with more significant decay or damage, may call for an inlay or onlay, which is a porcelain restoration that are boded to the tooth to hold it together and add strength and protection.
