Tooth-Colored Fillings

You can do a lot to keep your teeth healthy by committing to excellent oral hygiene and periodic check-ins with your family dentist in Wilmington, DE. Even if you’re proactive with your oral health, you may still develop a cavity.

Fortunately, fixing a cavity is easy, especially when we catch it early on during a dental exam. Tooth-colored dental fillings restore your oral health and strengthen the tooth so you can chew on it again. And since it's done using a material that mimics the appearance of dental enamel, the repair will blend seamlessly into your smile.

Why We Choose Tooth-Colored Fillings

Because Dr. Amanda Matthews and Dr. Edward Bayley stay current with advances in dentistry, their Wilmington, DE patients can expect the highest standard of dental care possible. When they learns about new materials like tooth-colored dental fillings, they pass the benefits on to you, the patient.

Dr. Matthews and Dr. Bayley choose tooth-colored dental fillings for several reasons:

Natural-Looking Appearance

Because white tooth-colored fillings are a composite of resin and glass particles, the finished results look very lifelike when placed in your tooth. We customize the dental composite to match the shade of the tooth for a perfect, seamless repair.

Structural Integrity

When we place a tooth-colored composite filling, it isn’t necessary to remove much existing structure. Since the filling material is placed directly on your tooth, it creates a strong bond while still allowing us to keep the majority of the tooth intact.

It’s essential for dentists to preserve healthy tooth structure for as long as possible. By placing conservative dental restorations like tooth-colored fillings, Dr. Matthews and Dr. Bayley repair the tooth and help you maintain excellent oral health.

Affordable Dental Bonding

Since our tooth-colored filling material looks so lifelike, we use it for cosmetic dental bonding. Bonding is a conservative cosmetic treatment that allows us to correct cosmetic dental flaws like:

  • Chips along the edges of your teeth
  • Wide or uneven gaps and spaces between teeth
  • Cracked, broken, or discolored teeth
  • Shape or size discrepancies

We also use dental bonding to create direct veneers. With direct veneers, Dr. Matthews and Dr. Bayley expertly mold the filling material directly onto your tooth. There’s no outside lab involved, so dental bonding is more affordable than porcelain veneers.
