Tooth-Colored Fillings in Tampa and St. Petersburg FL

At the office of Modern Day Smiles, we strive to provide you with the highest quality oral care solutions. To help repair and restore teeth that have been damaged due to cavities, we offer composite or tooth-colored fillings. These are a natural-looking, highly effective, safe and durable alternative to traditional metal fillings.

Tooth-colored fillings are a great solution to strengthen and restore decayed, chipped and cracked teeth. When you come to our practice for restorative care, we will help you understand all the restoration options available for you and will evaluate the best way to give you a healthy and beautiful looking smile in a minimally invasive and effective manner.

The placement of a composite filling is started by administering local anesthesia. All existing decay is removed from the tooth, and the tooth is cleaned, disinfected and dried before applying a composite resin matching the natural color of the tooth. The resin is applied in layers, and the layers are allowed to dry using a dental curing light. Once the filling layers are enough to achieve the appropriate thickness of the tooth structure, the tooth is polished to give it a natural look.

Advantages of Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings

Composite fillings are great for restoring the function and strength of decayed teeth. Patients love the natural-looking appearance of these fillings, and we prefer them as they are a metal-free, long-lasting and more conservative form of treatment for our patients. The fillings blend in with your natural tooth color, giving you the confidence to smile freely.

One of the other benefits of using composite fillings is that they can be placed with less preparation of the tooth. This means less drilling is needed and more of the natural tooth structure can be preserved. Once the filling is applied to the tooth, it supports the tooth structure and adds to its strength.
