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 Sharda uses tooth-colored fillings made from composite resin to fill cavities and protect the tooth. Dr. Sharda can also remove old metal fillings and apply tooth-colored fillings for a safer and more attractive treatment for cavities.

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. Sharda. 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. Sharda 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. Sharda 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. Sharda will smooth the filling so it matches your natural teeth.
