What are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Cavities, one of the most common dental problems, develop when bacteria eat away at your dental enamel. Previously, cavities were treated with an amalgam material, a combination of metals, including mercury or silver. Now we know that amalgam fillings don't fuse well with the teeth, and mercury is dangerous to your general health. At Fort Loramie Dental Center in Fort Loramie, OH, Dr. Christopher Ashby offers tooth-colored fillings made with composite resin to fill cavities and protect the tooth. Dr. Ashby can also remove old metal fillings and apply tooth-colored fillings for a safer and more attractive treatment for cavities.
What To Expect from Tooth-Colored Fillings
Completing a filling with composite resin at Fort Loramie Dental Center is usually simple. The area surrounding the cavity will be numbed with a local anesthetic to minimize your discomfort. Other sedation methods may be discussed if you have any anxieties or fears. Once you're ready, the infected enamel is removed using a special drill that Dr. Ashby will choose based on the cavity's location and the decay level. After the enamel is cleared and the area is disinfected, the space will be replaced with the composite resin material and hardened. Dr. Ashby will polish the composite resin so it matches your other teeth.
