Probably not. Tooth-colored fillings in Alpharetta, GA go by several names – composite fillings, dental composites, white fillings – and the material was developed specifically to create seamless dental fillings that are strong and durable.
These fillings are called composites because they are a mixture of materials that give them their strength, beauty, and natural appearance. When combined, the glass and resin particles used look very similar to dental enamel.
Dr. Kai Liang further customizes the composite material to match the shade of your teeth closely. When we place the filling on the tooth, most patients can’t detect the repair, which makes it unlikely that anyone else will!
These characteristics also make the composite material quite versatile. We commonly use tooth-colored filling material to:
- Fill cavities and eliminate tooth decay
- Build up chipped or broken teeth
- Improve the shape or size of a tooth
- Close uneven spacing between teeth
- Create conservative, no-prep veneers
If you need to fill a cavity or have cosmetic smile flaws you would like to address, please call Alpharetta Creek Restorative Dentistry. Dr. Kai will evaluate your needs, talk to you about all the options we offer, and help you decide if a tooth-colored filling is the best solution for your needs.
