Teeth Colored Fillings

Color your cavities away with teeth-colored fillings, a seamless blend for a flawless smile!

Fillings made of a tooth-colored resin material used to treat cavities and restore damaged teeth blending seamlessly with your natural tooth color.

Using porcelains that are both predictable and safe, dentists are now using composite resin materials that are more tooth-like and react like natural teeth, which is even more critical.

Tooth-colored fillings include these advantages:

  • It will not compromise aesthetics to use them on both back and front teeth.
  • Using composite resin material produces brief and minimal tooth sensitivity if any.
  • Instead of the days required by some other materials to harden, they only take seconds.
  • You can restore 85-95% of the original tooth strength by bonding the white fillings to the tooth.
  • Natural tooth appearance and color can be closely matched.
  • They don’t require pins, grooves, or slots to retain them mechanically because they chemically bond to the tooth structure.

They Can Be Repaired if Damaged.

White or tooth-colored fillings are typically composite resin fillings. Today, composite resin fillings are the most commonly used and versatile. Filler particles bound together and encased by a hard matrix material make up a composite.

White or tooth-colored fillings don’t always require the numbing of the area to be restored because they are bonded chemically to teeth. If tooth decay has progressed into the underlying layer of dentin beneath the enamel layer surrounding the tooth’s nerve, then numbing (anesthetizing) will often be required.

A primer will be applied to the area being restored and the tooth cleaned once the decay has been removed. A bonding agent is cured after being flowed into the open pores that a primer has opened.

The tooth-colored filling material is placed inside the tooth, where a bonding agent has been prepared to adhere to the tooth by curing.

An intense curing light is used to harden the tooth-colored filling material after being shaped to resemble the tooth’s natural anatomy. Your bite will then be checked for a proper fit of your teeth coming together after the white filling hardens.

We will check if you can adequately floss between your teeth, should your tooth filling seep down into the spaces between your teeth. Your filling will then be polished and smoothed after any necessary adjustments have been made.

It is no longer necessary for you to have those unsightly silver fillings, call our office today if you require having a decay filled.

Sedation Dentistry

For your convenience, we offer these three types of comfort and sedation dentistry:

Nitrous Oxide

This “laughing gas,” as most people know it, is used for simple fillings or routine cleaning treatments and is the most common form of sedation. Thanks to this simple form of sedation, your entire dental treatment can be a relaxing experience.

Sedation By IV

During IV Sedation, the patient’s vital signs are monitored throughout the entirety of the procedure, as the sedation is administered via IV. The patient will have been sleeping during the entire process, in this case, and will awaken only after the procedure.

Suppose a patient must return to school or work after completing the procedure. In that case, it will be especially beneficial for them to understand their need for sufficient recovery time before they leave.

Conscience Oral Sedation

We currently offer oral sedation for our patients who wish to remain conscience and yet come to us with gagging problems or a higher than average amount of fear and anxiety. Throughout the entire procedure, we closely monitor their vital signs once giving a combination of oral medications.

Once taking the oral medication we provide, the patient becomes highly relaxed and drowsy, and after their appointment, most patients remember nothing of the fear or anxiety they may have thought to experience without.

You will not be put to sleep with oral sedation, and during the entire procedure, you will be able to respond to Dr. Melancon and his team.
