Tooth-Colored Fillings in
Cavities and tooth decay are among the most common health problems worldwide. At Gulf Coast Dental Associates, we use natural-looking, tooth-colored fillings to repair damaged teeth.
Cavities begin when a small hole forms on the surface of a tooth. While cavities can usually be treated very easily, they can develop into more serious problems if they are left untreated. The most common method for treating a cavity is to apply a filling to the affected tooth. The restored tooth will be strong and protected against future breakages and fractures. Overall, fillings offer a very high success rate, and they have helped countless people recover their oral health.
Composite or tooth-colored fillings consist of a carefully blended mixture of plastic resins and silica fillers. This type of dental filling is known for its superior strength and natural appearance. The material is both durable and flexible. Additionally, the color of a composite filling matches that of natural teeth almost flawlessly. Since composite fillings do not release any harmful toxins or metals into the body, they are remarkably safe, even when used repeatedly.
We start the process of applying a filling by cleaning out the decayed tooth and removing any harmful matter and existing filling material. Once the tooth is clean, we will carefully apply the composite filling material. The substance should seal off any voids and completely fill the structure. We will then allow the material to harden so that the tooth achieves the desired strength and integrity. To finish, we polish and shape the structure in order to provide it with a natural appearance.
