Tooth Colored Fillings

Tooth Colored Fillings Austin Dental Works

Almost nothing makes us feel better about ourselves than an attractive smile and beautiful teeth.

That’s one of the many reasons why tooth-colored fillings have become so popular with dental patients from throughout the Austin, TX, area and all over the US over the past several years.

After all, it wasn’t that long ago when fillings were only available in silver amalgam. This material, although strong and durable, left the patient with a very obvious silver-colored filling.

Even worse – over the course of several years, that silver color would gradually change to a much darker, almost black shade. Fortunately, Dr. Jaros can create tooth-colored fillings that exactly match the color of your existing teeth, and that color remains the same for the life of the filling.

More Information About Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are made from state-of-the-art composite material. Aside from the obvious benefit of this material matching surrounding natural teeth, there are other advantages to tooth-colored fillings. Dental composite material is extremely strong and durable, typically lasting for many, many years. And, unlike the old-fashioned silver amalgam filling material, tooth-colored fillings contain no mercury. It’s easy to see why these restorations are so popular for patients and dentists alike!

The Procedure Involved in Getting a Filling

Most adults who have at least one dental filling are familiar with the process involved, and that hasn’t changed with tooth-colored fillings. It begins with Dr. Jaros numbing the affected tooth and surrounding gum tissue, then removing all existing decay and the old filling material (if the new filling will be replacing an old one). Next, Dr. Jaros thoroughly cleans the tooth, then fills it with the composite material. The end result is a repaired tooth that looks exactly like the patient’s other healthy teeth!
