Dental fillings work by “filling in” the damaged areas of your tooth, restoring the structure, contours and strength of the tooth. Additionally, tooth-colored fillings work to restore the appearance of the tooth and create a result that will blend in with your smile.
Traditionally, dental fillings have been made of silver amalgam, which is a mixture of mercury and other metals. Our dentist has chosen to use only composite resin materials when providing fillings for both aesthetic and health reasons. Composite resin not only matches the color of your teeth but will work with your tooth to strengthen it. Tooth-colored fillings also contain no harmful materials, which promotes your oral and overall health and will provide a longer-lasting result for your smile.
Your filling can be placed in a single appointment. First, the decayed and damaged tooth structure will be removed. Then the tooth will be thoroughly cleaned and the filling placed. Our dentist will shape the filling to match the contours of your teeth, harden it and polish it.
We invite you to call us today to learn more about the benefits of tooth-colored dental fillings and make your appointment with our dentist.
