Most traditional dental fillings are used as solely for dental restorative purposes because of the materials they’re made of. There are some traditional materials such as amalgam that have the strength and durability to help restored teeth to withstand extreme forces that result from chewing in the back of the mouth. However, since they are not aesthetically pleasing, they’re not meant for cosmetic purposes but rather for restoration and functionality purposes. However, there are newer dental filling materials that are not just used for restorative purposes, but also for cosmetic reasons. Newer cosmetic dental fillings are made of ceramic and plastic compounds. These materials look just like your natural teeth. These compounds, which are frequently called composite resins, are usually placed in the front of the teeth because that’s where a natural appearance is more important because it’s in an area that’s noticeable. These materials are not as strong as the traditional materials. While they aren’t always able to be used in the back of the mouth, they can sometimes be used in the back of the teeth depending on the location and the severity of the tooth decay. If you need a filling and are concerned about tooth restoration as well as aesthetics, we suggest that you make an appointment to see our expert cosmetic dentist at our Stoughton dental practice, Easton Smiles.
