What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Dental cavities are created when bacteria attack your enamel. Previously, cavities were filled with an amalgam material, a mixture of metals, like mercury or silver. Now we know that these fillings do not bond fully with the teeth and the mercury may be hazardous to your health. At Contemporary Dentistry, our dental experts offer tooth-colored fillings made from a composite resin to fill cavities and protect the tooth. We can also take out metal fillings and apply tooth-colored fillings for a safer and more attractive treatment for cavities.

What Are the Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings?

At our Fairfax, VA practice, we are pleased to give our patients cutting-edge solutions in oral care. Natural-looking fillings are a dependable and efficient choice, providing patients many upsides, like:

  • Natural look that easily integrates with your teeth
  • Defending against cavities
  • Blocking debris and plaque buildup
  • Easy, convenient procedure that gives long-lasting prevention

Should I Get Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings typically seal the decayed area in the tooth once it is cleaned out by dental experts. Composite resin is a versatile material that may be used to correct other issues with your teeth, such as cracks or excessive wear on the enamel by bruxism (teeth grinding). Since the material is tinted to match your natural teeth, tooth-colored fillings can be placed on the back and front teeth for a seamless appearance. If you have metal fillings, talk to your dental professional about having them taken out and re-done with composite resin.

What To Expect with Tooth-Colored Fillings

Receiving a tooth-colored filling at Contemporary Dentistry is generally a simple procedure. The area surrounding the cavity will be numbed to help you feel more comfortable. Stronger sedation methods can be discussed for any fears or anxieties to keep you relaxed. After you're ready, the affected enamel can be treated using a unique dental drill that your dental provider will select based on the location of the cavity in the tooth and the level of decay. Once the enamel is removed and the tooth is cleaned, the cavity will be replaced with the composite resin material and hardened. We can also smooth the filling material so it feels comfortable and matches your natural teeth.

UPDATE: January 2024. My 6th year with Dr. Morales. Had another cleaning. As usual, great experience. I don't have insurance, so I am happy they still honor Aetna's discount membership for real savings. Started to learn Spanish and I can practice it in real life...and for free! Hasta la proxima vez ! UPDATE: January 2023. Just had the cleaning done, after five years still a satisfied customer. This is my second review for this excellent office. After neglecting my teeth for quite some time a broken toothed forced me to visit a dentist. After a research on the web and subsequent phone calls I settled for the Contemporary Dentistry of Manassas. One of the reason was that not having insurance the office accepts Aetna Savings Plans, basically a discount for the services. The discounts are real as I found out calling some other offices. My first visit was in January 2018. I have had numerous procedures done since then (altogether 30 - thirty - visits) ranging from deep cleaning, numerous cavities and including one implant and two crowns. All work was done in the office, the quality of work has been 100%+, I have never experienced nay 'post-procedure' pains or complications. The staff is very friendly and I am very happy I picked Contemporary dentistry for my dental needs. UPDATE: January 2023. Just had the cleaning done, after five years still a satisfied customer.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Morales and his practice for 18 years. The time period, alone, should be an indication of my family’s satisfaction.  Dr. Morales is wonderful...he invariably demonstrates serving his patients’ best interests and well-being in recommending and carrying out treatment. We have never had lingering issues in any treatment given.  We have successfully recommended him and his practice and will continue to do so. We never have a problem with scheduling appointments and the office staff is always welcoming and pleasant. The office, itself, is modern and comfortable.  If I could give 10 Stars, I would! P.S. Love our hygienist, Amy.

I’ve had a very positive experience with Contemporary Dentistry of Fairfax starting with my initial phone call to make my appointment, to the welcoming and professional office staff, and the talent and skill of the dentists. I currently see Dr Noumy but I trust that I would get the same care from the other dentists as well.

I travel from Florida for Dentist Diego Morales.  He is super careful and I don’t have any pain.  Excellent work in my mouth.  Dentist Diego Morales treats you like part of his family.  No waiting times when you have an appointment.  The receptionist and the staff very attentive.  I recommended 100%.

I have been a patient of Contemporary Dentistry (Dr. Morales) for many years and my experience with his practice has been very positive (especially considering I do not enjoy dental work). He has always made me aware of options for treatment. Over the years, he has always reassured me during instances where I may need a filling, root canal, crown and most recently a dental implant. The staff at Contemporary Dentistry, including hygienist Amy and office personnel are very professional and considerate. Dr. Abril did the implant procedure and his expertise and followup care was especially appreciated. My experience with this practice is such that I have not explored other options for my dental care and consistently see them for my regular checkups. If there are any concerns between regular visits, all I have to do is phone the office and an appointment is available very quickly. I am very happy with the service I have receive from Contemporary Dentistry of Manassas and recommend them without reservation.
