Tooth-colored composite fillings are used to restore teeth with minor damage or decay, often caused by cavities. To learn more about tooth-colored cavity fillings, call Trumbull Premier Dental today.
When holes or voids are present in the teeth, they can allow food particles and harmful bacteria to enter. This can result in interior damage and cause the tooth to rot from the inside out. With the use of dental fillings, we can seal off these voids and restore the tooth’s overall structure and strength.
The tooth-colored composite fillings we offer are extremely durable. These fillings consist of a composite mixture of plastic resins and silica fillers. Once treatment is complete, the appearance of the tooth will be restored, and it will function the same as any healthy tooth.
With a tooth-colored filling, our team starts by removing any visible decay and filling material that is currently present. The tooth will then be thoroughly cleaned in order to remove any existing filling material. At this point, the filling process can begin.
The composite filling will seal off any voids or openings that are present on the tooth, and we will allow it to completely harden. The treated tooth should soon achieve proper structure and strength. To finish, the tooth will be polished and shaped so that it reaches a natural-looking appearance.
Patients should remember that dental fillings are only suitable for restoring teeth with mild to moderate damage or decay. When teeth are damaged more seriously, it is usually necessary to provide more extensive dental treatment. But when used correctly, dental fillings can do an excellent job of restoring damaged or decayed teeth. Most of our patients who receive dental fillings are extremely pleased with the results that look natural and provide exceptional functionality.
If you believe that you are suffering from a cavity or some other form of mild tooth decay, a tooth-colored composite filling may be able to restore its health. A visit to our practice will allow our experts to determine if you can benefit from a composite filling. You may call us at (203) 408-2868 to schedule an appointment.
