Dr. Nadia Bahramnejad and Dr. Haley Wilson provide dental fillings to repair and restore your teeth and smile. These fillings are made using tooth-colored material that blends in with your teeth to give you an aesthetic final result, and are designed to be minimally invasive and preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible.
Tooth-colored dental fillings, also known as composite fillings, have revolutionized the field of dentistry by providing a natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing solution for restoring decayed or damaged teeth. Unlike traditional silver amalgam fillings, tooth-colored fillings blend seamlessly with the natural color of the tooth, making them virtually indistinguishable.
These fillings are made from a mixture of tooth-colored resin and glass particles, which are carefully matched to the shade of the patient’s tooth. We apply the composite material in layers, using a specialized light to harden each layer before adding the next. This layering technique allows for precise shaping and contouring, ensuring a comfortable fit and a seamless finish.
One of the key advantages of tooth-colored fillings is their conservative nature. Composite fillings require minimal removal of healthy tooth structure, allowing for more conservative treatment options. Additionally, composite fillings bond directly to the tooth, providing extra support and strengthening the remaining tooth structure.
Another benefit of tooth-colored fillings is their versatility. They can be used not only for repairing cavities but also for addressing other dental issues, such as chipped or worn teeth. Our dentists can artfully sculpt the composite material to reshape the tooth, restoring its natural form and function.
Furthermore, tooth-colored fillings are considered biocompatible and nontoxic, making them a safe and reliable option for patients. They also have a reduced risk of temperature sensitivity compared to amalgam fillings, which can expand and contract with temperature changes, potentially causing discomfort.
When you receive a dental filling our dentists will thoroughly clean your tooth and remove any damaged tooth structure from the area. The composite material will then be applied, sculpted and hardened to “fill in” the tooth and restore its strength, structure and appearance. This entire treatment can be completed in a single visit to our office, and our team will make sure that you remain comfortable throughout the entire treatment process.
