Tooth-Colored Fillings

Healthy teeth are an important goal, but we also understand the importance of feeling confident about the way you look. A beautiful smile lights up your face, attracts others to you, and helps you feel good about yourself.

At Dr. Katie To Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer restorative dental treatments that focus on esthetics so you can be sure you’ll always see results that improve your oral health and also enhance your appearance.

Advances in the materials we use have given us many options for improving your smile without a lot of costly cosmetic dental treatments. One of the most cost-effective options we offer for creating beautiful repairs and correcting minor flaws is tooth-colored fillings.

Why We Choose Tooth-Colored Fillings

You may also hear us refer to a tooth-colored filling as a composite or composite filling. This is because they’re made of a combination of materials that we mix to closely resemble the shade of your natural teeth. Tooth-colored composite fillings not only look great, but they’ll leave your tooth stronger than when we started.

Some advantages of using composite fillings for making repairs are:

  • Tooth-colored fillings closely resemble the appearance of natural dental enamel.
  • We can easily color-match composite fillings to the natural shade of your teeth.
  • The material can easily be shaped to alter the size and shape of a tooth if necessary.
  • We can preserve more healthy tooth structure using composite fillings.

An Alternative to Cosmetic Treatments

We use tooth-colored fillings to restore a damaged tooth, but they can also be used to correct a variety of problems. Using composite fillings, Dr. To can:

  • Create fillings that closely match the look of your natural teeth
  • Fill in chips and build up broken teeth
  • Close uneven spaces and gaps between your teeth
  • Refine the shape of irregular teeth
  • Correct the appearance of severely stained teeth
