Fillings

For many years, amalgam fillings (or silver fillings) were the gold standard. However, these contain mercury and over time can cause discoloration or cracks in your teeth. 

Thankfully, there are now tooth-colored fillings – a safe, mercury-free way to bond and restore teeth.

What are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Also known as composite resin, tooth-colored fillings are made from fine plastic and ceramic particles. One perk of tooth-colored fillings is that we can customize them to match your tooth shade. This way, your fillings will blend in with your teeth, unlike silver fillings. 

When is a Tooth-Colored Filling Necessary?
If you have a small tooth chip or cavity, we can easily fix it with a tooth-colored filling.

How Tooth-Colored Fillings Work
We will first use a local anesthetic to numb the area that will be worked on. Then we will remove the decay and apply a bond, which prepares the surface(s) for the filling. This will create a bond between the tooth surface and the composite resin (or filling.) Once the tooth is filled with the resin, it is light-cured so that the resin hardens. We will then adjust, polish, and smooth out the filling. 

How Long Do Tooth-Colored Fillings Last?
Tooth-colored fillings can last for many years when well-maintained. The best way to preserve your fillings is to regularly brush and floss as well as keep up with your routine cleaning appointments.
