Are you experiencing pain and sensitivity when eating or drinking certain foods? Do you experience tooth pain when chewing? This discomfort could be symptoms of a cavity. If you do have a cavity, we at Brevard Smiles can help. With a tooth colored filling, you can restore comfort with a natural-looking solution. In the past, fillings were performed with a metal filing, making them noticeable. Luckily, with advances in dentistry, you can recieve a filling that mimics the natural appearance of your original tooth structure.
What is a Tooth Colored Filling?
A tooth colored filling is a revolutionary advancement in dentistry that allows you to restore tooth structure and eliminate decay with the natural look of your surrounding teeth. This type of filling can be used to alter the size, color, and shape of your teeth. It is an improved advancement that is able to restore and benefit your healthy, beautiful smile.
There are many advantages of tooth colored fillings performed by Dr. LoSasso, Including:
- Your filling is designed to match the color and appearance of your teeth
- The filling is chemically bonded to your tooth so there is no need for additional methods to keep it in place
- Provides increased strength to the tooth
- Can completely harden in seconds
- Can be used in the front of the mouth, or on back teeth
- Can be easily repaired if damaged
How Does it Work?
During the procedure, the area is first numbed to ensure patient comfort. Once the area is numb, decay is removed from in and around the tooth. The tooth is then cleaned so that no debris is left behind, and a primer is added. A bonding agent is then applied to the open area where it is then cured. Curing allows for the bonding agent to securely bond to the tooth colored filling. The filling is then placed on the tooth and shaped to resemble the look of your teeth. The filling is hardened using a strong curing light. Once the filling is hardened, your bite is then checked for comfort when biting, and any adjustments are made if necessary. The results provide you with restored comfort and an improved natural-looking smile.
