The Benefits of Tooth-Colored Restorations

Restoring damaged teeth to their original strength and beauty takes the right kind of materials and professional skill.  In comparison to metal-on-porcelain treatments, which have a metal amalgam base with an overlay of white material, tooth-colored restorations contain no metal and are created from bio-materials that match your own, real dental enamel.

If you’re looking into restoring damaged teeth, tooth-colored restorations offer the following benefits for cosmetic and restorative dentistry patients:

Better color matching – Tooth-colored, porcelain restorations look more like your natural teeth in shade, texture, and luminosity. We’re able to precisely color match surrounding teeth, and ensure that their natural appearance lasts as your restoration ages.

No dark spots on teeth – Dental restorations should give patients smiles that look clean, healthy and fresh. By using materials that match your real dental enamel, you won’t see any tell-tale signs of a silver filling, crown, or bridge.

Enhanced cosmetic appeal – When fixing a flawed tooth in your smile zone (the teeth that are at the forefront of your smile), it’s important to make sure that treatment doesn’t make your teeth look unnatural in any way. By making sure your veneers, crowns, fillings, or bridges are color-matched to your real teeth, you’ll be able to get a healthy smile that stands the aesthetic test as well.

Not all tooth-colored treatments are created equally. Only restorations made from life-like materials, such as porcelain and ceramic, are able to give you a beautiful smile that looks great and maintains its flawless appearance for years with proper care.

Dove Dentistry offers all-porcelain restorations that preserve the natural aesthetic of your real teeth, whether you need a cosmetic smile enhancement, or are seeking a restoration for a decayed tooth.
