At the office of Ellenton Family Dental, we are committed to offering you the highest quality oral care available. To help you restore teeth that are affected by cavities or other damage, we provide tooth-colored fillings which are a highly effective, better looking, more durable and safer alternative to traditional metal fillings.
Tooth-colored fillings are an amazing solution to strengthen and restore decayed, cracked and chipped teeth. When you visit our practice for an appointment, we offer restoration options available that allow you to achieve natural looking, healthy teeth in a minimally invasive and effective manner.
To place a tooth-colored filling, the tooth is first prepared by removing the decay or damage. Then, the filling material is bonded to the tooth in layers. Every layer is allowed to dry using a special dental curing light. Once the desired thickness has been achieved, the tooth is polished to make its appearance smooth.
Tooth-Colored fillings are highly effective in restoring the strength and functionality of decayed teeth. Patients admire the natural-looking appearance of these fillings, and dentists opt for them as they are a metal-free, long-lasting and conservative form of treatment for their patients. The fillings blend in with the natural color of your teeth giving you the beautiful smile that you deserve.
One of the other benefits of tooth-colored fillings is that they can be placed with less preparation to the tooth. This means that more of the natural structure of the tooth can be preserved. Once the filling is applied to the tooth, it supports the tooth structure and adds to its strength.
