For the longest time, your best option for repairing a cavity was dark-colored metal amalgam. Naturally, traditional amalgam is strong enough to help your tooth perform all of its necessary biting and chewing functions, but from a strictly aesthetic standpoint it doesn’t do your natural-looking smile any favors. If you get in touch with Dr. Ponnaganti, she can repair your smile with virtually unnoticeable tooth-colored fillings from our Westchase, FL dental office, thus restoring your health while still allowing you to feel comfortable about your grin.
A “tooth-colored” filling is actually just another name for composite fillings. Dental composite is made of a mixture of powdered glass and plastic resin. It mimics the way natural enamel reflects light, and it’s close enough in color that it can easily be shaded to match your tooth. Typically, tooth-colored fillings are recommended for the front teeth, which are of course immediately visible to anyone who sees your smile. That said, they withstand chewing force well enough to be a viable option for the rear teeth as well.
