Austin Tooth-Colored Filling Dentistry

Traditionally, dental fillings have been silver-colored, making it obvious that a patient has had dental work done. Nowadays, however, it is possible to opt for tooth-colored fillings for a more subtle appearance. Natural-looking fillings blend in with the surrounding tooth, making them undetectable to others. If you have a decayed or damaged tooth that requires a filling but you want to avoid the unattractive traditional silver color, we can help.

BridgeView Dental offers a number of tooth-colored filling options to our patients. To speak with one of our Austin tooth-colored filling experts about your filling needs, request an appointment or contact us today by calling 512-347-8299.

Tooth-Colored Filling Options

Natural-looking fillings are designed to blend in with the color and texture of natural teeth. Some of the most popular alternatives to traditional silver-colored fillings include:

  • Composite fillings: These are manufactured using a combination of resins and other materials. They are less durable than traditional fillings, but are more attractive and less obvious.
  • Ionomers: These are made of resins, glass powder, and other materials. They are a more fragile type of filling and so are reserved for use near the gum line or the root of the tooth.
  • Porcelain fillings: These are produced using a combination of porcelain, ground glass, and ceramic to create a durable, natural-looking filling.

If you need to have a filling applied to a damaged or decayed tooth but you do not want your smile blemished by a silver marking, a tooth-colored filling may be the ideal option for you.
