Tooth Colored Fillings at Our Family Dental Practice

Get a virtually undetectable filling!

Are you experiencing pain or discomfort in your mouth? If so, the cause may be a cavity, and you may want to visit our offices as soon as possible. Patients are often wary about getting tooth fillings, because they think that people will be able to see the filling when they talk, laugh, or even open their mouth. Although this used to be the case, advanced technology gives patients the option of getting tooth-colored fillings.

Tooth-colored fillings, sometimes referred to as composite fillings, are a more attractive alternative to silver or amalgam. When patients come to one of our offices to get a tooth-colored filling, we match it with the natural color of their teeth, providing them with a filling that is virtually undetectable.

What is a tooth-colored filling?

Tooth-colored fillings consist of composite resin that is used to fill cavities, just as the silver amalgam would. With the advancement of new materials and technologies, the dental industry can now use fillings that are just as strong as the traditional silver ones, and are not nearly as visible. This is why tooth-colored fillings have become increasingly popular over time.

How do they work?

When you come in to Rieser Family Dental for your filling, we will ensure that the entire cavity has been removed. A tooth preparation is then created which is used to remove any organic residue, and a fixated amount of tooth-colored resin is bonded to the tooth. We will then carefully sculpt the resin to recreate the anatomy of a normal tooth, with such precision and skill that the filling will blend in naturally with the rest of your teeth. Once the resin has hardened with the help of a special light, the tooth will be smoothed and polished. Finally, we will check your bite by ensuring that it feels normal and that the filling is not deformed.
