Tooth-Colored Fillings

At A Family Dentist, we understand the importance of feeling good about the way you look. A beautiful smile lights up your face, attracts others to you, and helps you feel good about yourself. Our goal is to combine restorative dentistry with aesthetics to create a healthier, more attractive smile.

Today, we can help you achieve a beautiful smile without investing a lot of your time and money in costly cosmetic dental treatments. A cost-effective option we offer for creating beautiful repairs and correcting minor flaws is tooth-colored fillings at our Sun City Center dental office.

Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are made of a mixture of glass and resin particles, so you will also hear them referred to as dental composites or composite fillings. This results in a filling material that closely resembles the shade and luster of natural teeth.

Tooth-colored composite fillings are also a healthy choice because they don’t require us to remove a lot of tooth structure to provide a durable, aesthetic repair.

Some advantages of using composites for making repairs are:

  • Tooth-colored fillings resemble natural dental enamel for a seamless repair.
  • We can customize the shade of the material to match your beautiful smile.
  • Composite fillings start with a putty-like consistency that can be shaped on the tooth to improve its appearance.
  • Since we bond the filling material directly to your tooth, we can preserve more of the healthy structure of the tooth.

An Affordable Cosmetic Alternative

Since tooth-colored composite fillings look so natural and blend so well with surrounding teeth, we also use them correct a variety of aesthetic problems.

  • Fill in chips and build up broken teeth
  • Close uneven spaces and gaps between teeth
  • Refine the shape of a tooth correct size discrepancies
  • Conceal severely stained teeth that can’t be whitened

The process for placing a composite dental filling is:

  • Prepare the tooth by removing the decayed portion
  • Apply an etching solution that prepares the tooth for filling
  • Apply a bonding agent and set it with a curing light
  • Create the restoration by building the composite up in layers
  • Trim and refine the shape of the restoration
  • Adjust the filling as needed to ensure that your bite is correct
