Tooth Colored Fillings
Just about everyone will experience a cavity at some point in their life. This doesn’t have to be a crisis, however, nor does it need to permanently mar your smile.
Regular dental visits will allow us to identify cavities early in their development – long before you ever feel a thing! Fact: most patients will not notice any symptoms after a cavity has formed. Catching cavities early also allows us to provide conservative, simple treatments.
We like tooth-colored fillings for several reasons, and so do our patients! When we fill your cavity with this putty-like resin, we can blend it to perfectly match the natural shade of your enamel. Even you probably won’t be able to find the filling later!
Additionally, tooth-colored fillings bond directly to the tooth structure, which means that we can keep more of your own healthy tooth in place, a big improvement over old silver fillings, which required dentists to essentially carve a “hook” into the tooth structure to hold the filling in place.
The finished product will be virtually invisible, allowing you to enjoy an increased level of protection without worrying about your look. Check out the video below for a better visualization of how we can repair your cavity with a tooth colored filling.
With countless years of experience and a wide variety of available services, you can trust Dr. Ruiz, Dr. Sam and the rest of our team to care for your whole family.
