We Can Seamlessly Heal Your Smile

In the old days, the words, “you have a cavity,” were a lot more dreaded than they are now. They meant that you had to get a metal filling that would leave a permanent gray spot on your tooth, marring your smile for the rest of your life. The good news is, those days are long gone, thanks to tooth-colored fillings in Ormond Beach. These composite resin fillings can be used to seamlessly heal your cavity without anyone besides our dentists even having to know that you had one in the first place. If you think you might have a cavity, or if you want to get your old metal fillings replace with a tooth-colored alternative, give us a call today to arrange an appointment.

What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings Made Of?

Tooth-colored fillings are comprised of a composite resin, or a mixture of glass and plastic particles. This material is actually the same one that is used in direct bonding. It can be color changed to blend in with the existing tooth enamel so that no one has to be aware of your filling except our dental team. Composite resin actually bonds directly to the tooth, making it a more conservative treatment than traditional metal fillings.

How Tooth-Colored Fillings Are Placed

The tooth-colored filling process is simple and easy, and can often be completed in just one visit to our office. Either Dr. Nawrocki or Dr. Dennis will clean the affected tooth and remove any decayed areas. Once we work together to decide the proper shade for your filling, we will apply it to the surface of your tooth in layers until the entire cavity is filled. Then, we’ll use a curing light to harden the resin into place and allow it to bond to the tooth. Finally, the tooth will be polished and smoothed, giving it a natural appearance.
