Tooth-Colored Fillings for Williamsville
Over 90% of adults will experience a cavity at one point or another in their lives in which they’ll need to have a filling placed to correct the problem. In the past, dentists typically offered metal amalgam fillings that had a noticeable, silver appearance. While this treatment was effective enough, the result ended up looking noticeable and unnatural. At Amherst Dental Group, we strive to provide dental solutions that offer both health and aesthetic benefits whenever possible.
Am I A Candidate for Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Our team may recommend a tooth-colored dental filling in the following situations:
- You have mild to moderate decay
- You currently have an amalgam filling that you would like to replace
- You currently have an amalgam or composite filling that is damaged or worn
- Your tooth is suffering from a small fracture or crack
The Treatment Process
Having a tooth-colored filling placed only requires one short appointment at our Williamsville location. One of our dentists will carefully remove the portion of the tooth that’s damaged, making sure to preserve as much of the natural structure as possible. After cleaning away any remaining bacteria, they’ll then place the quality composite resin material on top. After sculpting the resin to seamlessly blend in with your natural smile, a special light will be used to harden it in place. Then, you’re finished! Your tooth is restored, and virtually no one will even notice a change.
