Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings | Family Dentistry, Wichita, KS

Family Dentistry Wichita
Image Description

If your dental cavities aren’t addressed in a timely manner, you can cause further damage and may even face losing your tooth! While this tooth decay is irreversible, dental fillings can be utilized to correct it. And the best news yet—tooth-colored fillings can offer you a quick and unnoticeable solution to dental cavities! At Cambridge Family Dentistry in Wichita, Kansas, our team understands the importance of treating cavities efficiently and has detailed the benefits of opting for tooth-colored fillings. Learn more below!

  • Aesthetically Pleasing

    Unlike silver amalgam or outdated gold fillings, tooth-colored fillings can correct cavities while blending with your surrounding tooth structure, remaining unnoticeable to the outside eye. Even while yawning, laughing, and smiling, nobody will know the difference between where your natural tooth ends, and your filling begins! At Cambridge Family Dentistry in Wichita, we typically recommend natural, tooth-colored fillings for most patients, but specifically, patients requiring fillings on their front teeth due to the high visibility.

  • Quick Placement

    Contrary to popular belief, placing a tooth-colored filling is quick and painless, taking less than an hour to treat one to two cavities! During the appointment, your dentist will administer local anesthesia to numb the treatment area, remove the affected part of the tooth, and apply the natural-colored resin material directly into the cavity. After the resin material has been shaped to your natural bite pattern, it will be cured with a professional light, and your tooth will be as good as new. Not to mention, you will be allowed to eat and drink immediately after your appointment!

  • Long-Lasting

    Not only are tooth-colored fillings pleasing to the eye, but they are long-lasting and durable. With proper oral hygiene practices and regular dental visits, your fillings should last up to 15 years! To extend the lifespan of your fillings, our dentists recommend brushing and flossing twice daily, undergoing a routine cleaning and exam every six months, and avoiding chewing on ice or hard candies as they may chip your fillings. If you have any questions regarding your fillings, it’s best to contact your dentist as soon as possible to discuss potential solutions!
