Tooth-Colored Restorations

If you’ve had cavities or tooth decay, your dentist in Round Lake probably recommended you get dental fillings. Dental fillings are key to restoring the healthy function of teeth, and also serve as a line of defense for the roots of your teeth. A typical way to fill teeth in the past was to use an amalgam material, which is a silver or mercury material. Luckily, modern advances in dentistry now allow dentists to treat cavities with tooth-colored fillings.

What Are Tooth-Colored Restorations?

These tooth-colored restorations are made of composite resin, and are able to blend into the color of your teeth. This natural color makes them more attractive, and less noticeable to everyone else. These restorations are used when filling cavities or fixing broken or chipped teeth. If you’ve already received the more traditional amalgam fillings, don’t worry! Our dentist in Round Lake is able to replace these fillings with tooth-colored restorations.

What Are The Benefits of Tooth-Colored Restorations?

The most obvious benefit of tooth-colored restorations is that these fillings match the color of your teeth, hiding them from yourself and others. These fillings are made to appear and feel like your natural tooth enamel, meaning you can eat, drink, and talk without worrying anyone will see silver in your mouth. 

Additionally, when compared with silver fillings, tooth-colored restorations have proven to be more resistant to wear and tear and therefore last longer than traditional fillings. This type of restoration is bonded chemically to the tooth, and is better able to prevent future decay and damage.

The Procedure

The procedure to place tooth-colored restorations is quick and easy! Our Round Lake dentist can place your tooth-colored filling in just one visit. First, your teeth will need a thorough inspection and cleaning. After preparing your mouth for the procedure, the dentist will apply a local anesthetic to numb the area and remove any existing debris. 

Finally, he or she will place the filling on the tooth so it fits comfortably and naturally. Your tooth will be ready to use immediately after the anesthetic wears off. With good dental habits and regular cleanings and check-ups, your tooth-colored restorations have the potential to last for many years.
