The health of your teeth directly affects the attractiveness of your smile. When you have healthy teeth, it certainly shows whenever you smile! On the other hand, the smallest imperfection can also have a significant impact on the aesthetics of your smile. A damaged tooth, especially one that is located in the front portion of your mouth, can instantly make your smile look unattractive and extremely unhealthy. Restoring the damaged tooth will bring back not only the normal use but also the aesthetics of that said tooth.
Teeth restorations used to be dark in colour, which makes them conspicuous when the mouth is opened to speak or smile. Now, there is a way to restore a damaged tooth back to its former health without compromising its appearance. White dental fillings are now used to fill out the damaged or decayed portion so the tooth can be restored to its prior functional strength, while still maintaining its normal healthy appearance.
White fillings are virtually invisible inside the mouth, as the filling material used can be adjusted to match the exact shade of the rest of the natural teeth. The tooth restoration also makes the tooth look whiter and brighter, and it also improves the overall strength so further decay or damage can be prevented. The restoration can be made chairside to shorten the overall treatment time and increase the patient’s comfort when it comes to having a damaged tooth (or teeth) restored.
