When restoring decay in a tooth, composite or tooth-colored restorations provide the best esthetic result. After the decay has been removed, we carefully select a shade that matches the shade of the tooth and the surrounding teeth, ensuring the restoration’s effective visual integration into your dentition. Tooth-colored fillings can be used on both back teeth and front teeth, and can also be used to replace old mercury-containing silver fillings or to even close unsightly gaps between teeth.
What to expect after the procedure: Your restored tooth might be slightly sensitive to cold, heat, and air for a few days or even a few weeks after the procedure. It takes time for the tooth to adjust to the new filling. Toothpaste specially formulated for sensitive teeth can be used during this adjustment period.
