If you have a cavity and need a filling, but would like to maintain a natural appearance, Commonwealth Prosthodontics offers composite fillings. Tooth- colored, or composite, fillings keep your teeth looking natural and can enhance your smile. You can even smile without anyone knowing you ever had a cavity or a filling.
Composite fillings are strong and made of high-quality material, which is able to withstand the repeated stress of chewing. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, “Dental porcelains easily and efficiently imitate the enamel part of a tooth.” Composite fillings offer a cosmetic upgrade while maintaining the strength and integrity of your tooth.
Composite fillings last up to 15 years. They are made of a resin material that is highly durable and functional. Composites bond to the tooth to support the remaining tooth structure while helping to prevent breakage and insulating the tooth from excessive temperature changes. The insulative properties of the resin reduce the risk of cracking and can help prevent future decay.
Commonwealth Prosthodontics in Richmond, VA is dedicated to restoring your smile through composite fillings. If you have been diagnosed with a cavity and require a filling, tooth-colored fillings are a great alternative to maintain a beautiful, healthy-looking smile.
