Do you want to restore your teeth without an unsightly metal mouth? Tooth-colored fillings are a popular alternative to traditional silver fillings. For tooth-colored fillings in Roseville, schedule an appointment with Dr. Kaur.
If you have cavities, give us a call. When Dr. Kaur fills cavities, she uses metal-free composite (tooth-colored) materials that blend in seamlessly with your other healthy teeth. Tooth-colored fillings can be shaded to closely match the rest of your tooth, making them perfect for filling cavities on your front teeth and other visible areas of your mouth. You will never have to worry about metal mouth again!
The composite materials we use are made from a blend of dental-grade plastics and glass particles. This resin chemically bonds to the structure of your tooth to provide additional strength and support. The versatile resin can also be used to repair chipped, broken or worn teeth. Tooth-colored fillings are usually smaller than silver fillings, so they require less preparation and drilling. This ensures that you can maintain more of your natural tooth.
The process for receiving a tooth-colored filling is the same as a traditional silver filling, and can usually be completed in about an hour. At your appointment, our dentist will use local anesthesia to numb your tooth and the surrounding area.
Then he will remove the decay from your tooth and prepare your tooth to receive the filling. Once the resin is applied, our dentist will cure it to the surface of your tooth using a special light, securing a tight bond.
Finally, he will polish your tooth to ensure its restoration looks smooth and natural.
Yes, our fillings are completely safe. Compared to traditional silver fillings, our tooth-colored fillings contain no mercury or other metals. The plastics and glass particles used in the composite resin are medical-grade and non-toxic.
With proper care and good oral hygiene, your filling will last up to a decade. Your filling will be just as strong durable as your natural tooth, allowing you to chew normally.
