What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
A dental cavity is a common problem that is created when bacteria erode your tooth enamel. In the past, dental cavities were filled with a material called amalgam, which is a mixture of different metals, like silver or mercury. Now we know that amalgam fillings don't fuse very well with the teeth and that mercury can be hazardous to your overall health. At Junée F. Gardy DDS, PA in Naples, FL, we use tooth-colored fillings made with a composite resin to fill cavities and protect the tooth. Dr. Junée F. Gardy can also remove metal fillings and replace them with tooth-colored fillings for a safer and natural-looking treatment of cavities.
What to Expect from Tooth-Colored Fillings
Receiving a tooth-colored filling at Junée F. Gardy DDS, PA is typically a quick process. The treatment area will be numbed to minimize any discomfort. Other forms of sedation may be discussed for anxiety to help keep you relaxed during the procedure. Once you're prepared, the affected enamel is cleared away with a dental drill that Dr. Gardy will select based on where the cavity is located in the tooth and the level of decay. After the enamel is treated and the area is disinfected, the space will be filled with the composite material and hardened. We will then polish the filling so it blends with your natural teeth.
