Tooth-colored Fillings in Norman
At some point, everyone gets a cavity filled at the dentist. Regular dental checkups and cleanings can help you avoid cavities, but they can be quite common even with daily brushing and flossing. Rose Rock Dental offers tooth-colored fillings as an alternative to the standard metal fillings you may be used to. This allows our expert dental staff to remedy cavities and maintain your beautiful smile. Tooth-colored fillings are tough and look good without sacrificing durability or quality. At Rose Rock’s Norman office, this treatment is available for filling any cavity.
What Are Tooth Colored Fillings?
Tooth-colored fillings use composite resin and porcelain material. In the past, metal fillings required the dentist to remove part of a tooth. Tooth-colored fillings bond directly to the existing parts of the tooth. Once applied, the resin is sculpted to match the contour of your tooth, and it hardens in place. The result is a natural-looking filling that works with your original tooth. The new filling transfers pressure evenly to the tooth, making it less susceptible to cracking.
