Undeniable proof that science can be artfully applied to cosmetic dentistry is the tooth-colored filling. You will no longer feel uncomfortable with gold and silver amalgam fillings. You can smile with confidence as you show off your perfectly blended tooth-colored fillings.
Composite resins are used to make tooth-colored fillings that are bonded to your teeth, forming a tight seal. With this seal bacteria is prevented from attacking your teeth, helping teeth to stay healthy and decay-free. These tooth-colored fillings can also prevent hot and cold sensitivity, as well as biting pain. Finally, tooth-colored fillings require less of your tooth to be removed, so you can keep more of your natural tooth structure.
Before applying the tooth-colored filling in a series of layers, any decay is removed from the affected tooth. Then a special light is used to harden the resin after which time the filling is shaped and polished for a natural look and feel.
Because they are tooth-colored, the fillings are practically undetectable, easy to apply, and usually require only one visit.
