Tooth Colored Fillings Q & A
What are tooth-colored fillings?
Fillings are tooth restorations that can restore your teeth, prevent tooth decay, support your tooth structure, and more. Fillings fill a hole in your tooth, usually after the removal of tooth decay. Fillings can repair teeth that have been worn down over time from various other factors, such as teeth grinding, nail biting, or for fixing cracked, broken, or weak teeth.
Tooth-colored (composite) fillings are specially made to discreetly blend in with your natural teeth. Tooth-colored fillings are typically made from plastic and ceramic compounds.
Why would I choose a tooth-colored filling?
Dr. Danielewicz will recommend tooth-colored fillings if you suffer from tooth decay and the cavities that it causes.
You might choose tooth-colored fillings to discreetly blend in with your natural teeth, unlike silver metal fillings and other fillings that are more easily visible. With tooth-colored fillings, nobody will know you’ve had dental work. Tooth-colored fillings also don’t contain any metal, which many experts believe to be a safer and more effective, durable, and aesthetically appealing option.
What does getting a tooth-colored filling involve?
During your appointment, Dr. Danielewicz first administers anesthetic and uses special dental tools to remove any decayed tooth material.
Dr. Danielewicz then applies a mild acid to help the tooth-colored material properly bond to your tooth. Dr. Danielewicz typically applies the filling material onto your tooth in small layers with a special dental light that hardens each layer before he applies the next layer.
Dr. Danielewicz makes minor alterations throughout the procedure to make sure your filling successfully matches your bite and blends in with your teeth. Once the filling is hardened, your tooth is restored and you can go back to your daily life!
What are the benefits of composite tooth-colored fillings?
Tooth-colored fillings can successfully blend in with your natural teeth for optimal discretion and are an innovative preventive care method and a long-lasting aesthetic solution to treat an array of minor dental problems.
Unlike other types of fillings that require multiple dental visits, tooth-colored composite fillings can usually be placed during one appointment.
Dr. Danielewicz uses high-quality materials and ensures the color of your filling is the perfect match. No one will be able to recognize your filled teeth versus your natural ones!
Tooth-colored fillings can resolve your dental concerns and go unnoticed. During your initial consultation, Dr. Danielewicz can help you determine if tooth-colored fillings are right for you.
