Tooth-colored fillings are the choice of dentists and patients these days for filling cavities because they're durable while offering an aesthetic, natural, and appealing look.
Made with composite resin material, tooth-colored fillings are bonded directly to your tooth, creating a tight seal and bond that doesn't allow bacteria to reenter your tooth.
Dr. Leonardi, your trusted dentist in Manchester, NH, can customize the composite material, so it blends flawlessly with your tooth and complements your smile.
How Long Do Tooth-Colored Fillings Last?
With the proper care and consistent bi-annual visits with Dr. Leonardi, most tooth-colored fillings have a life span of seven to twelve years.
We can also use composite resin material for cosmetic dentistry in Manchester, NH, with a procedure called dental bonding. Dental bonding adds composite resin to your teeth to eliminate minor flaws like:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
- Tooth size discrepancies
- Tooth staining or discoloration
Dental bonding can fix many of the same issues that porcelain veneers can typically for less cost.
