Houston dentist explains the benefits of tooth colored fillings

At some point or another, many patients may develop tooth decay, or cavities, these areas are damaged and must be restored to avoid pain, discomfort, and continual problems. Tooth decay may also be an indicator that periodontal disease is developing, so it is important for patients to take charge of their dental health as soon as possible and consider tooth fillings. The team at Vivid Dental provides quality tooth-colored fillings to help address the area of concern and maintain an aesthetic appearance.


Dental fillings are used to replace parts of the tooth’s structure that may have been affected by tooth decay. A conservative method is the first course of treatment for those dealing with cavities. In some instances, fillings may be used in conjunction with a dental crown to protect a tooth with a weakened structure.


In the past, many patients have received silver amalgam fillings, which were popular and used for many years to address areas of decay. However, they are unattractive in the smile, and stand out when patients smile, laugh, or speak with others. Instead, patients should consider the benefits of tooth-colored dental fillings. They are just as strong as silver amalgam fillings, but provide a less visible method of restoring their smile. They blend in seamlessly with the natural tooth enamel and are unnoticeable. Additionally, over the years, studies have shown that several health conditions are related to the placement of silver amalgam fillings due to their mercury content, making tooth-colored fillings better for the health and beauty of patients visiting our practice.


All patients who visit Vivid Dental are encouraged to strongly consider tooth-colored fillings at our quality Houston, TX practice, and learn about the advantages they provide. Patients can enjoy a healthier, more beautiful smile, with tooth-colored fillings.
