Traditional amalgam was once the only option for patients who were dealing with cavities. Although durable and long-lasting, they often caused many problems, including expansion and damage of existing tooth structure as well as noticeable dental work. Fortunately, times have changed, and tooth-colored fillings are now a viable option for cavity-stricken teeth.
Comprised of composite resin that is malleable and shaded to match your existing tooth enamel color, it is applied after clearing out any decayed areas of the tooth.
When preparing to receive a tooth-colored filling, there is no reason to become concerned. Your dentist in Doylestown will administer local anesthesia to numb the tooth and its surrounding area before decayed portions of your tooth structure are thoroughly cleaned out. When finished, we will apply the composite resin to the area, filling in the structure and hardening the resin with a curing light.
The process takes little time, and you can walk out of our dental office with a stronger, healthier smile in just one appointment. If properly cared for, you can expect your filling to last a decade or longer before requiring replacement.
