Tooth-Colored Fillings Offer Great Cosmetic Value at Marvel Dental
Almost everyone will experience a cavity or two over the course of their lives. Thankfully, the process to treat them is quick and simple, and there’s more good news as well – if you’re worried about getting stuck with a noticeably silver spot in your natural smile, you can rest easy. Tooth-colored fillings are able to blend in seamlessly with white enamel creating results that both look and feel exceptional. In fact, no one but you and our Burleson, TX team will know you even underwent treatment in the first place. Patients from Rendon and beyond are welcome to contact us today and schedule their first appointment with us.
Tooth Filling Procedure
When placing a tooth-colored filling, Dr. Oza will start by removing the damaged portions of the tooth in question and thoroughly cleaning the area. Then, he’ll apply the composite resin material and take the time to sculpt it into the ideal position, essentially helping it disappear into a natural, healthy smile. Finally, it’ll be time to harden the new filling into place with the help of a special light.
Benefits of Choosing Tooth-Colored Fillings
- Like the name implies, our team is able to shade the composite resin material used for this cosmetic-minded solution to nicely complement your natural teeth.
- We use tooth-colored fillings in cases of replacing amalgam fillings, replacing failing fillings, and restoring areas affected by decay. In fact, the composite resin material is so flexible we can treat minor fractures or cracks as well, even if there’s no actual decay.
- Overall, our team at Marvel Dental is able to maintain more of your healthy tooth structure with composite fillings making them more conservative and better for your smile in the long run.
- Because they're lacking any metals, patients won’t experience the same sensitivity to temperature changes with tooth-colored fillings.
