Dental Fillings (Tooth colored)

Fillings are essential for replacing areas of tooth that have become decayed. Here at Perspective Dentistry, we offer a range of options when it comes to having fillings placed. One of the most popular and recommended options for fillings include composite resin, which offers a seamless tooth-colored material that blends into the tooth that it is being placed in.

What are the Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Older metal fillings can sometimes shrink and cause issues with further decay. Many patients are also now looking for a metal-free alternative that allows them to feel confident in their smiles. Some of the benefits of choosing a tooth-colored filling include:

  • More seamless look to your smile
  • Metal-free filling alternative
  • Ideal for areas where metal fillings typically fall out

What to Expect with the Procedure

The filling procedure is relatively simple and straightforward. First, any decay present in the tooth is removed using a slow speed drill. The area is then prepped for the composite resin filling and the filling placed. It is then smoothed into place and cured with a bright blue light. Composite fillings can last for many years without needing to have them replaced and they blend effortlessly into your smile. Here at Perspective Dentistry, we offer tooth-colored fillings for anyone who has decay in one or more of their teeth. It is imperative that you come in for a comprehensive examination and x-rays to ensure that you are a viable candidate for the procedure. From there, we will be able to perform the filling procedure in the comfort of our office at your own convenience.

There are many reasons to consider tooth-colored fillings over metal and many of our patients even have older existing metal fillings replaced with composite material. No matter what you are looking to achieve, we here at Perspective Dentistry are able to perform the work that is needed in a comfortable, calm, and relaxing environment.
