TOOTH COLORED FILLINGS IN PEORIA
A filling is often used to fix the area where a cavity has appeared. The rotted part of the tooth is removed and filled in order to maintain the integrity of the structure of the tooth. Fillings can come in an amalgam form or a resin form. The resin option is a tooth colored filling that appears as if there was no portion of the tooth even removed. The amalgam filling appears as a dark spot on or in the tooth where the cavity was replaced.
TOOTH COLORED FILLINGS
Tooth colored fillings usually cost more than metal fillings and may be harder to get if you’re using insurance. However, they’re usually the preferred filling because of how smoothly they blend in with your other teeth. These fillings are also referred to as composite resins. This type of filling is good for smaller repairs of the tooth. They’re strong and can withstand any pressure applied by chewing. However, if a filling is larger than usual, the strength of these fillings will be a little weaker and are not usually the preferred option for larger repairs of a tooth.
HOW TOOTH COLORED FILLINGS WORK
Usually, when implants are utilized it takes drilling a post into the jaw for each tooth that’s needing to be replaced. However, with technological advances, if an entire row of teeth need to be replaced and dentures are not desired, all-on-4 implants can be used. This is where only four posts are surgically placed into the jaw and then a full row of false teeth is attached to the posts.
For those not wanting dentures and for those who would prefer something a little more permanent, all-on-4 dental implants are a plausible option. Implants are often more expensive but, they offer more conveniences than dentures. Not only are implants not able to be removed but, they can be treated just like natural teeth and aren’t as sensitive as dentures.

What a great dental office. I was just in there today and the people are amazing! My oldest daughter and I were scheduled to get our teeth cleaned at the same time, but I had to bring my year and a half old daughter with us, it was daddy’s day while mommy had to run errands. They helped out so much so I could get my teeth cleaned until my oldest was done and she could watch her. Great people!
This place is awesome. The atmosphere is dope. The staff is very nice and friendly. The place is so inviting. The exams and cleanings are VERY THOROUGH. They don’t just clean and send you own your way. They ask questions and get to know YOU. This was the best dental visit I’ve ever had.
Dr. Arthur’s one of the best dentists I have amazing dental visits and the quality of work he does is outstanding. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a dentist. Thank you so much for all the great work.
