What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Metal is no longer the standard when it comes to treating decayed teeth because they can wreak havoc on your smile over time. Instead, composite resin is widely used today. The putty-like mixture of ultra-fine plastic and glass particles has proven to be a much safe and effective solution. Since it can be shaded to match any tooth color, you can enjoy seamless and natural-looking results! Also, the biocompatible material bonds directly with the enamel, allowing you to keep more of your natural tooth structure intact.
The Process of Getting a Tooth-Colored Filling
Getting a tooth-colored filling in Carrollton is a fairly simple process! In many cases, it can be completed in a single appointment.
Dr. Albeer will thoroughly numb the area where the filling will be placed to ensure you’re completely comfortable. Once you’re good to go, he’ll carefully remove the decayed tissue and clean out the tooth. After the tooth is sanitized, he’ll create a custom shade of composite resin that closely resembles your natural enamel.
The composite resin will be applied directly to your tooth to restore the lost enamel. Once Dr. Albeer has carefully sculpted the tooth, he’ll use a special curing light to harden the resin and bond it in place. Finally, your tooth will be polished, and he’ll make sure your bite feels comfortable. You’ll be ready to enjoy your beautiful, cavity-free smile that very same day!
