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 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.
