Tooth-colored fillings (also called dental composites) repair small cavities and blend in naturally, so you often can’t tell there’s been any dental work. Redwood City restorative dentist, Dr. Trinh uses clinically tested, bio-compatible, white tooth filling to repair cavities and cracks, and to replace old or failing mercury-based metal dental fillings responsibly. Tooth-colored fillings make sure your cavities stay between you and your dentist. If you have a cavity that needs to be filled, or if you want to replace old metal fillings, Dr. Helen Trinh of KARE dental would be happy to help with personal service and affordable, eco-friendly white filling options.
What’s great about tooth-colored fillings?
At KARE dental, Dr. Helen Trinh prefers tooth-colored fillings for many sound restoratives and cosmetic dental reasons. White or tooth-colored dental fillings are bio-compatible and do not contain mercury or other toxins.
There are several advantages about tooth-colored fillings.
- They have a similar thermal expansion rate to enamel, so they won’t crack your teeth like metal fillings.
- They are molecularly bonded to your teeth, meaning there is no gap for destructive bacteria to infiltrate.
- They require less reduction of natural enamel, resulting in you keeping more of your natural tooth.
- They blend in naturally and produce a bright and beautiful smile.
