What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
A dental cavity is a common problem that develops when bacteria erodes your tooth enamel. Previously, cavities were filled with a material called amalgam, which is a mixture of different metals, including mercury or silver. We now know that amalgam fillings do not bond very well with the enamel, and the mercury may be dangerous to your overall health. At Bright Young Smiles in Lighthouse Point, FL, Drs. Catherine and Jared Young offer tooth-colored fillings made with a composite resin to fill and protect cavities. We can also replace old metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings for a more reliable and natural-looking treatment of cavities.
What to Expect from Tooth-Colored Fillings
Receiving a tooth-colored filling at Bright Young Smiles is usually a simple treatment. The area surrounding the cavity will be numbed to minimize your discomfort. Stronger forms of sedation can be discussed if you have any anxieties to help keep you relaxed during the procedure. After you're ready, the decayed enamel can be cleared away with a dental drill that we will select based on the location of the cavity in the tooth and the amount of decay. Once the enamel is cleared away and the tooth is disinfected, the area will be replaced with the composite resin and set with a special light. Then, we will polish the filling material so it matches your natural teeth. You should be able to go about your day once the filling is done, but you may have a sensitivity to cold and hot foods and beverages for several days.
