WHAT ARE TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS?
Dental cavities are a common problem that develops when bacteria erode your dental enamel. In the past, cavities were filled with an amalgam material, which is a combination of metals like mercury or silver. Now, we know that amalgam fillings do not adhere well to the enamel and that the mercury may be dangerous to your general health. At Zensmiles in Frisco, TX, board-certified dentist Dr. Mohit Shardha uses tooth-colored fillings made from composite resin to fill cavities and protect the tooth. Dr. Shardha can also remove old metal fillings and apply tooth-colored fillings for a safer and more attractive treatment for cavities.
"He is hands down the best cosmetic dentist in the metroplex! I've been treating with him for 4 years and it's always a pleasure to go. I love the great results and no long waits plus he's soo sweet and caring! Thank you doctor for years of great dental health."- K.M. / Google / Apr 04, 2019
"Came highly recommended and I can now see why. He is the go-to cosmetic dentist for the high flyers in my firm and I am in awe of my smile after getting done. A big thank you to Dr Sharda and his staff for the exceptional work. I have been telling my friends and family to get their treatments done as I am sure for someone with his talent and expertise won't be in network with insurance companies for long. But I will still be going to him that's for sure. Cheers"- M.M. / Google / Dec 04, 2019
"The Doctor no doubt is a master at cosmetic dental work. Was referred by a friend who had veneers done by Dr Sharda and she looked at least 10 years younger after the treatment, its unbelievable how your smile can do that. I had several "cheap" crowns replaced and they came out stunning. It is a very high end practice with all the latest tech, I am moving to California for work but will be coming here for my dental work even if I have to fly in just for that. Too good!"- J.M. / Google / Jul 31, 2020
"Could not be happier with my smile, I get complements almost every day. It was the best investment of my life and I am loving it, I am so glad I got my cosmetic work done here and did not make the same mistake I made earlier when I went with the cheapest cosmetic dentist to get my veneers done which at the end looked fake and broke down within a few years. Thank you Dr. Sharda for stellar work and staff for putting up with my anxiety and schedule. I have been recommending you guys to all my family and co-workers."- J.P. / Google / Apr 04, 2019
"Trust the reviews, what an artist Dr. Sharda. He completely transformed my smile from something I was embarrassed about to something I am proud to flaunt. Like everything else in life you get what you pay for and I wanted nothing but the best after waiting soo many years to take care of my self and best is what I got. God bless Dr. Sharda, hope you live a long life to give people like me reason to smile again and with confidence."- T.S. / Google / Nov 04, 2020
CANDIDATES FOR TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS
Tooth-colored fillings made from composite resin cover the area of decay in the enamel of the tooth after it has been cleaned by Dr. Shardha. Composite resin is a useful material that can be used to correct other problems with your teeth, including chips or wear on the enamel caused by bruxism (teeth grinding). Since the composite resin is colored to blend with your natural teeth, tooth-colored fillings may be placed on both the back and front teeth for a great result. If you have amalgam fillings, talk to Dr. Shardha about getting them removed and re-done with tooth-colored fillings.
What To Expect
Getting a filling at Zensmiles is typically a simple process. We'll numb the treatment area to minimize your discomfort. If you have any dental fear or anxiety, we can discuss stronger forms of sedation to help you relax during the procedure. After preparing your tooth, Dr. Shardha will remove the decayed enamel using a precise and advanced device that he will select based on where the cavity is located in the tooth and the amount of decay present. After removing the enamel and disinfecting the tooth, he'll fill the area with the composite resin material and let it set. Dr. Shardha will smooth the filling so it matches your natural teeth.
