Repair your smile without the need for metal! Dr. Safar and her friendly dental team offer tooth-colored fillings in San Diego, California, to restore our patients’ smiles to the fullest.
At Celebrity Smile, we offer high-quality dental fillings to patients of all ages. Tooth-colored fillings are an excellent alternative to metal fillings and are safe for children over the age of six. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Safar to learn more about the benefits of metal-free fillings.
Also known as white fillings, tooth-colored fillings contain no metal and are made from a composite resin. The resin consists of high-quality glass particles and plastics. Unlike traditional metal fillings, tooth-colored fillings contain no mercury, tin, or other potentially discoloring materials, which may stain the surrounding tooth. This makes tooth-colored fillings a popular alternative to metal fillings, especially for parents who are concerned about how metal may affect their children’s mouths.
Dr. Safar can shade the composite resin to closely match the color of your teeth, offering a natural-looking restoration. Once placed, no one will be able to tell you had a filling at all. The composite resin can also be used to repair chipped, broken or worn teeth. Due to their versatility, tooth-colored fillings are perfect for repairing a variety of issues on the visible surfaces of your teeth without compromising the look and quality of your smile.
There are many advantages to choosing tooth-colored fillings over other alternatives. Unlike traditional metal fillings, composite resin chemically bonds to the surfaces of the tooth. This can strengthen the tooth’s natural structure and provide additional support for the filling. Tooth-colored fillings also require less of your tooth structure to be removed compared to metal fillings, allowing you to preserve more of your natural tooth.
