Tooth-Colored Fillings in Tinton Falls

At NJ Laser Dentistry, we understand how important it is to preserve the look as well as the health of your smile. That is why we offer high-quality and natural-looking fillings for seamless tooth restorations.

What are Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Silver fillings (known as amalgam) may be the traditional method of tooth restoration, but tooth-colored fillings are a popular alternative. Tooth-colored fillings are used to repair chipped, cracked or decayed teeth. Also known as composite fillings, tooth-colored fillings are made of a blend of dental-grade plastics and glass particles. The composite resin can be shaded to match the rest of your tooth and is chemically bonded to the surface of your teeth for a seamless restoration.

The bonding process creates a durable repair that can help strengthen the structure of your tooth. This means less of your tooth structure needs to be removed during the placement of your filling, allowing you to keep more of your natural tooth. Compared to silver and other metal fillings, tooth-colored fillings are a more conservative treatment option. Our dentist recommends tooth-colored fillings for both front and back teeth.

How Long Do Tooth-Colored Fillings Last?

With good oral hygiene and regular dental checkups, your tooth-colored filling should last at least five to seven years. Be sure to see our dentist every six months to assess the condition of your restorations.

Are Tooth-Colored Fillings Safe?

Yes, tooth-colored fillings are safe. Unlike other metal fillings, the composite resin in tooth-colored fillings contains no traces of mercury, which may leak into the patientโ€™s mouth or cause allergic reactions in patients with metal allergies. Tooth-colored fillings do not discolor or stain the surrounding tooth the way metal fillings do, making them a popular method of repairing the surfaces of visible teeth.
