Naperville Dentist Explains the Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

David Newkirk, DDS – a Naperville cosmetic dentist – lists the many functional and aesthetic advantages of tooth-colored (or composite white) fillings.

NAPERVILLE, IL, USA, January 10, 2024 / — Dr. David Newkirk, a cosmetic dentist in Naperville, states that tooth-colored fillings have largely replaced amalgam fillings in recent years. Also referred to as composite white fillings, tooth-colored fillings are made of a sturdy composite resin that can be closely matched to a patient’s teeth. While this type of filling was designed to serve the same purpose as its traditional counterpart (i.e., to repair teeth that have been affected by decay), Dr. Newkirk explains that tooth-colored fillings are widely considered to hold a number of advantages over amalgam fillings.

According to Dr. Newkirk, tooth-colored fillings are celebrated in the modern dental world – especially when they are created and placed by a qualified oral health professional. Below, he has compiled a list of some of the common benefits of composite white fillings:

– The ability to address cavities, enamel fractures, and chips

– The ability to preserve the tooth’s structure and prevent infection

– Durability

– Lifelike appearance

– Generally a more conservative treatment (i.e., requiring less removal of tooth structure)

– Limited opportunity for tooth sensitivity, as they do not conduct temperature in the same way as metal

Moreover, Dr. Newkirk urges any patient interested in treating their cavities to consider the benefits listed above. He also recommends patients entrust their care to an experienced dentist to increase chances of a safe procedure and optimal results.
