Tooth Colored Fillings—Now You See ‘em…
For those of you who feel a mouth full of silver or gold fillings is cosmetically appealing, you need not read any further. However, if you’re like me, and prefer your fillings to look like natural teeth, then I have good news for you.
Due to advances in dental technology, we can place tooth colored fillings in almost every tooth in the mouth. These synthetic porcelain-type fillings can be a real pleasant surprise; proving to be very strong as well as esthetically pleasing.
After decay is removed from a tooth or a fractured edge is rounded off, the filling is placed somewhat different from the traditional packing of silver into the tooth defect.
Specific solutions are first painted in layers on the part of the tooth to be restored. When the final layer is placed, a special light system with a high-intensity beam is focused on the filling material for about one minute. The energy of these special light waves physically changes the filling material into a rock-hard restorative.
We routinely use this filling material for front as well as back teeth, and (from the response we gett from patients) they are definitely a big hit!
