Tooth-Colored Fillings

A dental filling is an extremely common treatment method that is used to restore teeth that have experienced minor damage or decay. In many cases, a filling is provided when a tooth has developed a cavity, which refers to a small hole or void in a person’s tooth. If a cavity is left untreated, the hole can be used by food particles and bacteria to access the inner portion of the tooth and cause damage. Fortunately, most cavities can be easily repaired with a simple filling.

At Thomas & Thomas Dental, we provide patients with composite, tooth-colored fillings that are metal-free and look incredibly natural. These fillings consist of a combination of quartz and glass fillers that are housed in a resin medium. In addition to being highly resistant to fractures, our fillings work to strengthen teeth, leaving them exceptionally durable and sturdy.

Unlike metal fillings, tooth-colored fillings are not prone to leaking, and they will not expose a patient to any dangerous substances. Our practice also offers silver filling removal treatments that are designed to remove prior fillings that may contain harmful materials. Once the previous filling has been taken out, it will be replaced with one a tooth-colored fillings.

When applying a tooth-colored filling, we start by removing any visible decay and existing filling material that is present. Once the tooth is clean, we carefully apply the composite substance and harden it using a dental curing light. After the material achieves the strength and consistency of a healthy tooth, we will shape and polish the structure to provide it with a natural appearance. From there, the patient will be able to immediately continue with their usual brushing and flossing practices.
