Tooth –Colored fillings

Tooth-colored fillings can often be a great option for restoring teeth damaged by cavities and decay. Traditionally, fillings were composed of metallic, mercury-based materials that created an unnatural look. Since then, fillings have come a long way in both composition and appearance. At Tropical Smiles, this common dental solution – which is also called “white fillings” – involves the use of a strong resin material that is similar in color to a natural tooth. During the procedure, Dr. Schumacher uses a tooth-colored resin to fill cavities and/or crevices to help strengthen and stabilize affected teeth. Safe and effective for patients of any age, tooth-colored fillings can ultimately provide a durable, aesthetically pleasing look and feel.
