Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-Colored Fillings do not use metal but rely on other strong materials, such as fiberglass, to give them support and strength.

Dental Fillings

Like metal fillings, they are very resistant to decay, but they also have the added benefit of being invisible in the mouth, and tooth-colored fillings do not tend to react with metals.

West Hollywood dentist, Dr. Poneh Ghasri can discuss with you the choice between metal and tooth-colored fillings and help you decide which is right for you. There are advantages to both types as well as disadvantages, so be sure to talk with Dr. Ghasri before you decide.

But how do you know if your tooth needs a filling?

Some certain signs and symptoms show that you may need a tooth filling. If you experience any of the following, you should see your dentist:

    Pain when eating.
    Food particles trapped inside or between teeth.
    Tooth sensitivity to cold, hot, or sweet foods and drinks.

Caring for White Fillings

Taking care of your white fillings is simple. They can last a few to several years if given the correct maintenance. Reduce or completely stop the consumption of hard foods like nuts, candies, etc.

Regular brushing of your teeth at least two times a day will make fillings last longer.

Two times a year, dental cleaning at our practice will also help.
