The Color of Teeth
Over time many dentists have discontinued using silver-colored fillings in favor of tooth-colored fillings. And fillings on front teeth require more perfection in restoring teeth since they are so visible. Also, there is not much leeway when it comes to matching the shade. It has to perfectly blend in – not stand out at all.
The Cost of Color
One of the problems facing the dentist is that teeth can have many shades, even multiple shades on one tooth. So it has been necessary to purchase 20-30 shades to cover the full complement of colors and shades. Well, there is quite a lot of cost to this beyond what patients would believe. Additionally, the expiration dates of these products are usually less than 2 years. So it would be nice to cut down on the number of shades needed.
New Color Technology
The latest technology developed lets the dentist use one shade that will pick up the colors and shade surrounding the area to be restored and blend in. WOW! Another company has 3 variations, one for the normal shades, one for bleached shades, and one for darker shades, all of which will blend in.
I have just ordered this product and will try this out in the very near future. I am thankful that the manufacturers continue to help dentists with improved products.
