Tooth-Colored Fillings in Greenley
If you’ve ever had a metal filling placed, you know how they can change your smile. Metal fillings have a dark, unattractive color and can make smiling feel like a chore. Thankfully, metal fillings are becoming a thing of the past. Tooth-colored fillings are the new standard when it comes to treating cavities. Made from durable composite resin, tooth-colored fillings blend in with teeth to provide more natural looking results for our patients in and around Greeley.
Conservative Treatment for Cavities
But there’s more to appreciate about tooth-colored fillings than just their cosmetic benefits. Tooth-colored fillings are also a more conservative solution. Because they’re more supportive of the tooth’s structure, more of your natural tooth remains intact improving the overall health and longevity of your smile.
On the day of your procedure, Dr. Forney will remove all traces of decay from your teeth and apply the composite material to your tooth. After the material has hardened, we’ll make sure it matches the color of your smile, and do any additional shaping to preserve the proper alignment of your bite.
