What is a Tooth Coloured Match Filling?

A tooth-coloured match filling, also known as a white filling, is a composite resin material that is colour-matched to perfectly blend in with the rest of your natural tooth enamel and is used to fill a cavity. A cavity is a hole large or small and sometimes may be visible only on x-rays. Cavities should be treated as soon as possible in order to prevent the cavity from becoming larger and the decay extending. Tooth coloured match fillings are a popular type of filling because they are durable and almost unnoticeable.

While Eagle Ridge Dental Clinic has been a mercury-free practice for over 18 years, many people still have silver or mercury fillings in their mouths from years past. These fillings are not particularly pleasing to the eye, and ultimately result in a weaker tooth structure.

Why Might Wisdom Teeth Need to Be Removed?

Silver fillings like those used in years past, have many drawbacks. The edges of the silver filling can wear down, become weak, or break. This results in the tooth not being protected, which means cavities can develop once again. With age, the metal of a silver filling expands, contracts, and can split. Silver fillings contain 50 percent mercury, and can corrode, leak, and cause stains on your teeth and gums.

Fortunately, silver fillings can safely be replaced with tooth-coloured restoration fillings. Eagle Ridge Dental Clinic is pleased to provide tooth-coloured composite Match Fillings, which are not only unnoticeable, esthetically pleasing and very strong thanks to new bonding technologies.

Benefits of Tooth Coloured Match Fillings

There are many advantages to tooth-coloured fillings. Resin tooth coloured match fillings are bonded to the teeth creating a tight, superior fit to the natural tooth. Such restorations can be used in instances where much of the tooth structure has been lost. The tooth remains intact and stronger.

Since the resin used in tooth-coloured fillings contain fluoride, this can help prevent decay. Tooth decay and tooth fractures expose the interior of the tooth to bacteria because when sugar or starch dissolves in healthy tooth structure, infection is caused within the tissues. Restoring the damaged tooth structure with composite tooth filling has various benefits including:

  • Repairs damage caused by dental cavities or dental decay
  • Protects the remaining tooth structure from further damage
  • Re-establishes proper tooth functioning
  • Prevents progression of damage to the nerve of the tooth
  • Prevents the loss of the tooth
  • Facilitates you to clean your teeth easily
  • Reduces the count of bacteria in your mouth
