Tooth-Colored Fillings – Weatherford, TX

Seamlessly Fill in Cavities and Strengthen Your Smile

The vast majority of people will need a dental filling at some point in their life. Traditional fillings are made out of a material called amalgam, which is a mix of various metals. Although they are quite strong, they come with some serious disadvantages, including the fact that they create dark spots in a patient’s smile. Here at Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we offer tooth-colored fillings in Weatherford. They have the power to stop tooth decay and repair your smile without marring its appearance.

What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Rather than being made of metal, tooth-colored fillings are made out of composite resin. The resin is composed of a mixture of non-toxic materials, including plastic and tiny bits of glass. The material is very flexible, and it comes in a wide variety of shades. Your dentist in Weatherford can make sure that your fillings are a near-perfect match to the color of the enamel that surrounds them.

Placing these fillings is a fairly simple process. First, we numb the tooth and the surrounding area (if a cavity is not very deep, it may not be necessary to numb the tooth). Then, we remove the decayed area and insert the filling material. A special light hardens the resin. Finally, the dentist adjusts the filling and checks your bite to make sure that your restoration feels completely comfortable. An appointment for placing tooth-colored fillings usually lasts less than an hour.
