Looking for tooth fillings in Colorado Springs? We offer natural-looking, mercury-free composite fillings that match the color of your teeth.
White Colored Tooth Filling
At this office Dr. Tara Pool uses composite resin exclusively to fill all cavities, whether in the front or back teeth.
They look good, actually bond to tooth, have no mercury, and are the same color as tooth. It is very difficult to tell that you have a filling in a tooth when they are finished. Because composite filling material can be custom blended to match your natural tooth color, this durable material can even be used to fill cavities in the front of the mouth and it is rarely detected.
If you have any questions about these materials be sure to ask. If you have teeth or fillings that you feel do not look as nice as they could, be sure to ask about alternatives.
How does composite resin compare to enamel and dentin?
Our natural teeth are still the perfect combination of resilience and strength. Created by the fusion of enamel and dentin, teeth are designed to resist a lifetime of wear and tear.
The tooth’s outer shell is called enamel. This is the part of the tooth that is visible within the mouth and it is made up of densely packed calcium crystals. However, enamel contains no living material and it can be effectively simulated by dental porcelain.
The inner core of the tooth, or dentin, is more porous than enamel. It is also a living tissue that transmits nerve sensation. The dentin itself is made up of calcium crystals with collagen tubes, and composite resins have similar properties. The composite material allows for reliable adhesion to natural teeth, as well as excellent tooth color replication.
