Tooth Colored Fillings
We are a dentist in Carrollwood known as Carrollwood Smiles. Here at Carrollwood Smiles, we are committed to making sure that you look and feel your best! That is why we work with tooth colored fillings.
Generally speaking, there are two types of fillings. Fillings that are made of metal and composite fillings made up of white resin. A metal filling stands out and is often easy to detect with the naked eye, but a tooth colored filling is nearly impossible to detect with the naked eye and seamlessly blends in with the rest of your teeth.
Not only do tooth colored fillings look better, but they are also better for your teeth. This is due to the fact that placing a metal filling can end up damaging certain parts of your tooth, whereas the composite resin is very easy to mold and to fit into the space that needs to be filled. This is very important due to the potential long-term side effects of a metal filling.
A tooth may need to be filled due to being chipped or having a cavity. The process of filling a tooth with one of our tooth colored fillings is very simple.
We first remove any bacteria or germs that may be on the tooth that we need to fill. Then, a small amount of shaded composite resin will then be applied to the space on your tooth. The filling will be hardened with a soft-curing light, and then our dentists will shape it to make it fit the rest of your tooth. Finally, it will be polished in order to blend in seamlessly with the entirety of your tooth. It’s as simple as that!
