At Darryl Hatchett, DDS, Family Dentistry, our primary goal is to restore damaged or decayed teeth to their original healthy state. However, we know that the confidence that comes with a beautiful smile is invaluable because it increases your overall confidence in the way you look and feel.
Dr. Hatchett and our team focus on smiles that are every bit as attractive as they are healthy. Using many of the new materials and technology in dentistry, we can correct many esthetic dental imperfections without the need to break your budget. We're pleased to offer our patients tooth-colored fillings, a cost-effective solution that creates beautiful repairs and corrects minor dental flaws.
Advantages of Using Tooth-Colored Fillings
There are two primary benefits to choosing tooth-colored fillings:
Discreet and Natural-Looking
With tooth-colored fillings, we can easily match the shade of the filling to the color of your natural dental enamel. Dr. Hatchett carefully shapes the filling material to conform to the shape of your tooth for a repair that’s discreet because it looks so natural.
Preserve Healthy Tooth Structure
Our goal is to do everything possible to protect the existing structure of your natural teeth. Tooth-colored composite fillings are bonded directly to the surface of your tooth enamel, so it's not necessary to remove tooth structure to create beautiful, strong, and durable repair. Bonding the composite material directly to the tooth enamel also helps the repair last longer.
An Affordable Alternative to Cosmetic Treatments
If you’ve been thinking that your dental problem is going to require costly cosmetic treatment to fix, tooth-colored fillings are an affordable alternative. Translucent tooth-colored fillings allow us to create beautiful, seamless repairs, and this same quality that makes them perfect for fillings, makes them a good solution for correcting a variety of problems. Using composite fillings, Dr. Hatchett can:
- Construct a discreet filling that blends naturally with your own teeth
- Fill in chips and broken teeth
- Create a repair that closes uneven spaces and gaps between your teeth
- Correct the appearance of severely stained teeth
