Tooth-Colored Fillings in St. Augustine, FL
You deserve nothing less than a beautiful smile
In the past dental cavities were typically cared for with silver fillings, which could detract from your smile. But thanks to modern technology, we can now match your dental filling to your smile! And our tooth-colored fillings are not just for cavities.
St. Augustine dentist Dr. Jeremy Gordon offers the placement of tooth-colored fillings. Matching a restoration to your natural teeth is an art and a service that Dr. Gordon is happy to be able to provide his patients. A tooth-colored filling can make a significant difference in the health and appearance of your smile.
Why Might I Need a Tooth-Colored Filling in St. Augustine?
Tooth-colored fillings, otherwise known as composite fillings, are an aesthetically pleasing way to repair:
- Cracked teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Worn teeth
A composite filling is a strong material that can repair damage while also matching your natural tooth color. They can be placed in the front teeth and seamlessly matched so no one will ever suspect you had a restoration. We set the composite with a special light. These modern fillings are an alternative to silver, and they do not detract from your smile.
What Is the Dental Appointment Like?
First Dr. Gordon will ensure the site is fully numb. He will then carefully remove the damaged or decayed area of the tooth. The remaining tooth structure will be sterilized and then the restoration will be placed. Dr. Gordon will shape the restoration so it looks natural and fits your bite properly. Typically the process takes a single visit. It is normal for the area restored to be sensitive to pressure, heat, and cold but sensitivity will subside shortly.
Composite fillings are durable; however, they may need to be replaced at some point. To ensure your composite is well-cared for, it is important to brush, floss, and maintain a healthy and balanced diet. If you should notice an issue with a composite filling (it chips, cracks, or becomes discolored) please let us know immediately. At Gordon Dental Associates, we are always here for you.
Dr. Jeremy Gordon, your compassionate dentist in St. Augustine, wants your smile to stay beautiful; there is no reason for a little imperfection to draw all the attention. A composite fix may be just what you need to smile confidently again!
You can also talk to Dr. Gordon about replacing older silver fillings as well.
