How Tooth-Colored Fillings Improve Your Smile


When compared to its predecessors from decades ago, today's crowns, veneers, and tooth-colored fillings are quite natural-looking. There was a time when dentists only used silver fillings in their patients' mouths. This substance is still used in fillings today, although composite fillings, which are tooth-colored, are the most prevalent kind of filling material. It is possible at Summerlin Dental Solutions to match the color of composite fillings to the hue of the tooth and even let light to pass through them, much like real enamel.

Composite Fillings in Las Vegas, Nevada

Composite fillings are excellent in a wide range of situations and applications. When a cavity is present, the most apparent explanation for this is that the cavity must be filled. This is a fantastic method for purportedly erasing the imperfections that were before. It's almost as if the hollow never existed in the first place.

Teeth may be reshaped using composite fillings, and the placement of composite fillings can help to reduce excessive tooth spacing. In the event of a diastema (a big gap between the two front teeth), composite material is a non-invasive and cost-effective treatment option that gives immediate effects, without the need for a second appointment. It may be used as a substitute to braces in certain cases.


Fluorosis is a disease that produces discoloration and defects in the enamel. Mottled enamel is a sign of fluorosis. Composite materials are the preferred material for concealing this problem.

Composite fillings are simple to install, pleasant to the sight, and simple to replace if they fail. A filler may be readily concealed with the right technique and the right composite material. In our modern world, where dental perfection is now the norm, this is the appearance that is most sought for.


Finally, with composite fillings, you may be certain that your smile is in excellent care. There are some fantastic materials available that are a near-perfect match to the look of natural tooth enamel in terms of aesthetics. Smile with assurance, knowing that no one will ever have to know. Summerlin Dental Solutions is committed to keeping your secret.
