If you have suffered minor damage or decay to a tooth, you no longer have to rely on traditional amalgam fillings! Our tooth-colored fillings are used with materials that can closely match the shade of your teeth while offering you the same strength, durability and restorative treatment as amalgam.
At Smile Makers Dental Center, we want your smile to stay as beautiful as it can be. That is why we offer tooth-colored fillings to repair minor damage or decay, such as from a cavity. Our tooth-colored fillings are made of composite resins, which are an aesthetically superior alternative to traditional amalgam, so you will not have to compromise the look of your smile just to fix your tooth!
Tooth-colored fillings are applied directly onto the tooth or into the cavity. The procedure involves the administration of local anesthetic to numb the tooth. Our dentist will then remove any tooth decay and shape the emptied space to get it ready for the filling.
An acidic etching gel will then be placed in the space to make it easier for the ingredients of the filling to bond. Once the site is ready, our dentist will layer the filling in and harden it using a special light. This will make the filling strong, restoring your tooth to its original structure and integrity.
