Tooth Colored Fillings in Grand Prairie

Tooth Colored Filling in Grand Prairie

What is a Tooth-colored Filling?

Tooth-colored fillings are designed to match the color of your teeth and are known as composites. They look and react like natural teeth. They are used to:

  1. Mimic the natural appearance of tooth structure.
  2. Restore teeth that have been fractured or decayed.
  3. Cosmetically enhance the color, size, and shape of teeth.
How Long Do Tooth-Colored Fillings Last?

How Long Do Tooth-Colored Fillings Last?

While they are cosmetically appealing, tooth-colored fillings typically last approximately 5 years, whereas silver fillings can last about 10 years. But silver fillings cannot be used in the teeth which come under the smile line, and only tooth-colored fillings are preferred in that area.

How Is It Done?

It takes longer to place a composite filling when compared to the silver one. To place a tooth-colored filling, the area must be dry and free of saliva while filling the cavity.

  1. Food or drinks like tea, coffee has pigments (chromogens) that can stain the outer surface of the teeth called enamel.
  2. Fear of dentists in general which is usually due to a bad experience in the past.
  3. Fear of embarrassment where they feel that the dentist might judge them or lecture about the oral hygiene.
  4. Fear of pain due to the dental procedures.
  5. Fear of losing control due to fear of the dentist or lack of trust in the dentist.

Are Tooth Colored Fillings Better Than Silver?

  1. More natural-looking.
  2. Attractive restorations.
  3. They can be used in either front or back teeth whereas silver fillings can only be used in the back teeth.
  4. Similar durability to silver fillings.
  5. Blends with your smile and strengthens your teeth.
  6. Numerous shade options to match your natural teeth.


In a society driven by bright and white teeth, it is natural for people to want fillings that blend with their natural teeth. Visit Fresh Family Dental Clinic for tooth-colored fillings today!
