Failing Restorations
 
Over time, fillings in teeth start to deteriorate and require replacement. This individual had tooth colored fillings placed in the two front teeth several years ago. These types of fillings can become stained and discolor over time, creating an esthetic concern. They can be replaced with new fillings to match the existing tooth color, helping them to blend into the teeth once again!   Fillings may also require replacement if decay exists around them. These tooth colored fillings are discolored around the edges by decay of the tooth structure around them. Once decay starts around a filing, the bacteria spreads rapidly, getting underneath the filling and destroying tooth structure. These failing restorations must be replaced quickly to prevent further destruction of the tooth and to help prevent additional treatment.
