Are you sick of unsightly dark fillings? Perhaps you’re yet to have a filling and want the first to be subtle and natural, maintaining your healthy smile. At Revitta we offer tooth-colored fillings that look completely natural in the mouth and also restore the tooth structure so it works as exactly as it should.
Why Might you have a Tooth-Colored Filling?
Fillings are great and allow us to repair our teeth without having to take the next steps of using a crown or removing the tooth.
If you’re tooth is decayed or fractured a filling can resolve this, allowing the tooth to function as normal. But some fillings can be unsightly and dark in color making them noticeable when you speak, laugh and smile. Tooth-colored fillings allow us to repair the teeth naturally so your smile still looks great.
Tooth-colored fillings can also be used cosmetically to repair chips, fill gaps and help make teeth appear straighter and more even.
What are the Benefits of a Tooth Colored Filling?
Apart from looking natural, tooth-colored fillings are much less sensitive to hot and cold than other filling options. Tooth-colored fillings also do not contain mercury like some other fillings, which is considered to be a potentially toxic to us.
A further benefit of using white fillings is that they require less removal of the tooth, saving more of the natural teeth. They also restore most of the original strength meaning they are more resistant to fractures and leaving the tooth strong.
What are White Fillings Made of?
White or tooth-colored fillings are made from a light-cured resin. Initally, the filling is a putty-like material, which is molded into the gap in the tooth to fill it. This is then hardened in the mouth using a curing light to make sure the filling is strong enough for daily use.
How Long will a Tooth Colored Filling Last?
More durable than silver fillings, you can be sure your tooth-colored filling will stand the test of time. In some cases white fillings can last a life time meaning you never have to have them replaced. New technologies means that the compression and bonding strength of the materials used has improved greatly increasing the life span of the filling.
What is the End Result of a Tooth-Colored Filling?
At Revitta we match tooth-colored fillings to the color of the tooth that is being repaired to ensure a completely natural end result. If you need one of your teeth in the front of your mouth repaired a high shine material is used, and for the back teeth a stronger more durable filling is used. Both look great and result in a natural and fantastic finish.
What’s more is that the filling will feel completely natural allowing you to use the tooth normally at all times.
