What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Dental fillings have been used for decades to repair decayed or otherwise damaged teeth. At our Lewisville dental office, we use tooth-colored composite resin material instead of traditional amalgam. That way, no unwanted attention is drawn to your smile in the treatment process. So, if you’re in need of a new tooth-colored filling or you want to replace an old metal one, don’t hesitate to contact our dental office today!

The Process of Getting a Tooth-Colored Filling

Placing a new filling only takes a single appointment, and the process is simple and comfortable. After numbing the treated area and removing the damaged portions of the tooth, Dr. Capehart will pick the shade of composite resin that’s closest to your current smile and sculpt it carefully into place in order to treat the cavity. After hardening it with a curing light, you’re done! Patients can expect to experience some light sensitivity, but this should fade within a day or so.

The Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

In addition to the lifelike appearance, here are a few other reasons patients and dentists alike choose tooth-colored fillings:

  • The flexibility of the composite resin allows our team to preserve as much of the natural teeth as we possibly can, which is much better for your smile in the long run.
  • There are no metals present to react badly to hot and cold temperatures. Oral sensitivity is greatly reduced, and patients can enjoy a more comfortable smile.
  • As long as you brush and floss diligently and attend regular checkups, your new tooth-colored filling should last for 10-15 years or even longer.
  • Tooth-colored fillings are cost-effective and often partially covered by dental insurance.
