Tooth-colored fillings are just one of the many treatments we offer to restore your teeth. Read on to learn about the benefits of tooth-colored fillings.

Metal Fillings vs. Tooth-Colored Fillings

Gold and silver have been traditionally used to fill cavities. Though these are commonly used materials, they are not always the best choice for treating cavities. Fortunately, advances in dentistry have led to many tooth-colored options for dental fillings. Tooth-colored fillings can be used to treat new cavities as well as replace old metal fillings. Here are some things to be aware of when deciding to replace metal fillings.

Alternatives to Tooth-colored Fillings

There are cosmetically appealing alternative options to tooth-colored fillings. For our patients in Bloomington, dental crowns may be used when there is extensive damage to the tooth. Schedule a consultation to see which treatments are right for you.
