Tooth-Colored Fillings in Foster City, CA
Cavities are a common dental problem and require restorative treatment to prevent decay from damaging your entire tooth. A filling prevents the bacteria decay from spreading deeper into the tooth and protects your oral health. Many cavities develop in the back teeth, so fillings in these areas often are not visible when you smile. But what if you have a cavity in a more prevalent location, such as your front teeth? Fortunately, you don’t have to let a traditional silver filling material (gray-colored amalgam) interfere with your smile because we offer tooth-colored fillings at Jing-Jing Qian DDS.
White fillings, also called tooth-colored fillings, are significantly discreet while maintaining strength and durability. These fillings blend in well with the surrounding tooth and are not noticeable. Made of composite resin, these fillings do not just fill the cavity but bond to the surrounding tooth to create a durable filling that can last for many years.
Did you know there is a large variety of composite filling material just like there are different brands of clothes and cars? Our dental office does not just stock one brand of filling material and use it everywhere because different brands and types of filling material excel at different things.
Dr. Jing-Jing Qian only uses high-quality dental filling material and customizes the type of filling material to the need of the patient.
Some white filling brands are known for beauty and blend exceptionally well to the teeth, and we use those on your front teeth for a great appearance.
Others are known for strength and durability, which we use on molar teeth or patients with a history of clenching or grinding.
There are also filling materials designed to be more resistant to tooth decay and acids in the mouth, and we use those in people with higher tooth decay risk factors.
