Fillings are used in order to seal off small holes in a tooth that are caused by a cavity. Fillings help prevent this decay from spreading fillingsfurther, preventing the need for a root canal, extraction or crowns. Dr. Harry Tatoian, Jr. in Weymouth, Massachusetts can help prevent future dental issues with preventative dental care. He can examine each patient to decide whether or not tooth colored fillings will help restore their damaged teeth in a safe way.

More about Tooth Colored Fillings

Also known as cosmetic fillings, this filling type is undetectable and requires less drilling of the tooth. This makes the teeth at a lesser risk of cracking and is especially great for broken or already damaged teeth. General dentistry focuses on treating patients so that their self-esteem remains high despite any dental work or problems in the mouth. Tooth colored fillings look just like natural teeth, which is something that teenagers especially enjoy.

Some advantages of tooth colored fillings include:

  • They match the natural color of the teeth
  • They restore a high percentage of the strength of a tooth
  • They harden in seconds
  • They can be used on both front and back teeth
  • If they are damaged, they can be easily repaired.

When it comes to fillings, tooth colored ones or not, a patient may be more susceptible to hot or cold things for a period of time after receiving them. If you feel any pain after your fillings, it can be a problem with your bite, so schedule an appointment immediately with your dentist.
