Tooth Color Fillings

Tooth Color Fillings | Dental Fillings - Lotus Dental Group

Do you have a chipped tooth or a cavity that needs fixing? Worried about a dark filling showing when you smile? We can help! At Lotus Dental Group, we offer tooth-colored fillings, a safe and natural-looking solution to restore your teeth.

What are tooth-colored fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings, also called composite fillings, are made of a special resin material that can be matched to the shade of your teeth. Unlike older metal fillings, they blend in seamlessly, so you can smile with confidence.

Benefits of tooth-colored fillings

  • Natural-looking: They blend beautifully with your teeth, making them virtually invisible.
  • Strong and durable: These fillings can last for many years with proper care.
  • Versatile: They can be used for cavities on both front and back teeth, and can even be used to repair chipped or cracked teeth.
  • Tooth-conserving: Tooth-colored fillings often require less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to metal fillings.

Procedure for Tooth Colored Fillings

Examination and Diagnosis: The dentist will examine your tooth to determine the extent of decay or damage. X-rays may be taken to assess the condition of the tooth and surrounding structures.

Anesthesia: Before the procedure begins, the dentist will administer local anesthesia to numb the area around the affected tooth. This ensures that you remain comfortable throughout the procedure.

Tooth Preparation: Once the area is numb, the dentist will use a dental drill to remove the decayed or damaged part of the tooth. The tooth is then cleaned to remove any debris and bacteria.

Etching: Next, the dentist will apply an acidic gel to the prepared tooth surface. This gel roughens the surface of the tooth and creates microscopic pores, which help the composite resin bond securely to the tooth.

Bonding: After etching, the dentist will apply a bonding agent to the tooth. This adhesive material helps the composite resin adhere to the tooth structure.

Placement of Composite Resin: The dentist will carefully layer and shape the tooth-colored composite resin onto the prepared tooth. They will use various shades of resin to match the color of your natural teeth as closely as possible. Each layer is hardened using a special curing light.

Shaping and Polishing: Once the desired shape is achieved, the dentist will trim and shape the composite material to ensure proper fit and bite. They will then polish the filling to smooth out any rough edges and give it a natural appearance.

Final Evaluation: After the filling is placed and polished, the dentist will check your bite to ensure that it feels comfortable and natural. Adjustments may be made if necessary.

Post-Procedure Care: You may experience some sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures following the procedure, but this should subside within a few days. Maintain good oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, to prolong the lifespan of your tooth-colored filling.
