Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you and at Alpine Dental, we’re dedicated to giving you the best smile possible. Many people aren’t happy with the traditional silver fillings from their younger days. The good news is that tooth colored fillings are very affordable and durable, so it’s perfect to use for any new cavities, or to replace the old, unsightly silver ones.

What Exactly are Fillings?

Tooth colored dental fillings are what we use to replace a portion of your decayed tooth to keep the rest of it healthy and strong. Traditional fillings were silver or gold, but the best and most modern substance for dental fillings is composite resin. Composite resin strongly resembles the teeth’s natural look and color, making it ideal for dental work. Tooth colored fillings can also be used to repair chipped teeth or to build up parts that are worn down or broken.

Benefits of Tooth Colored Fillings

There are several reasons that you should consider tooth colored fillings from Alpine Dental:

  • The composite resin can be matched to just about any color of tooth
  • Any dental work requiring fillings is almost unnoticeable
  • Fillings made of composite resin are durable and will last for many years
Patients should know that some insurance companies won’t cover the cost of tooth colored fillings because it can be considered 
cosmetic. Because insurance companies generally only cover the least expensive options when it comes to dental care, it’s a good
idea to check your plan to see what your responsibilities are when it comes to cost.
