When your tooth enamel becomes decayed, cavities form and can eventually cause serious damage to your smile. Luckily, decay on the surface of your teeth is easy to repair with our exceptional tooth-colored fillings. In the past, only metal fillings made from silver and mercury alloys were available to treat cavities. Unsightly and sometimes unsafe, metal fillings can be done away with thanks to our commitment to using the safest, latest dental treatments to take care of your smile.
Tooth-colored fillings are made of composite resin, a durable plastic that can be matched to the exact color of your natural smile. They are also referred to as white fillings or composite fillings. Soft and putty-like when first applied, tooth-colored fillings are placed in layers onto your tooth, once decay has been removed, and sculpted to fit the grooves and shape of your original tooth. Tooth-colored fillings bond with your natural tooth structure, creating a long-lasting, natural restoration.
At 19th Avenue Dental, we are able to place new tooth-colored fillings and replace old amalgam fillings. Dr. Shuichi Yamaguchi, our seasoned dentist, has the skill and training necessary to ensure the quality of your tooth-colored filling and return your smile to optimal health.
