Tooth-Colored Fillings

Strong and Natural Looking Teeth With Tooth-Colored Fillings

Older patients likely remember the days when silver-colored amalgam fillings were the service of choice for correcting dental damage caused by cavities – in fact, you may still have a few in your smile! While this service was reliable enough, it did have some significant pitfalls. Teeth were likely to weaken over time because of the amalgam addition, and temperature-related sensitivity was also a serious problem – not to mention the cosmetic sacrifices involved.

At Bartusiak Dental Care of Washington, our dentists are happy to now offer a much-improved alternative: tooth-colored fillings from our Washington, PA dental office. Tooth-colored fillings are made from composite resin, which is a modern, flexible material that comes in a wide variety of lifelike shades. These shades can match your tooth enamel and give you a much better look. Contact our Washington, PA, dental office today if you’d like to learn more about tooth-colored fillings or if you’re ready to schedule a first appointment.

How Are Tooth-Colored Fillings Placed?

In most cases, the placement of a new, tooth-colored filling will only require one appointment of the patient’s time. After numbing the patient’s mouth, we’ll take the time to remove the decayed portions of the tooth while leaving as much healthy structure in place as possible. Then, after a thorough cleansing, the composite resin material will be sculpted into place, shaped, and polished so that it feels smooth against the tongue.

What are the Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings?

  • Like the name implies, patients won’t have to worry about hiding a new, dark-colored spot in their smile following treatment. In fact, it’s likely that no one will even notice you’ve had a cavity filled at all.
  • Composite resin directly bonds with the tooth enamel, allowing for a smaller, more conservative filling that strengthens the natural structure.
  • With proper oral hygiene and professional maintenance, tooth-colored fillings should last for a long time.

Dr. Barry and his staff are wonderful. They make you feel comfortable the moment you walk in. During your visit, they are always asking if you need anything and if you’re okay. Every staff member is very friendly. I have had both routine cleaning and dental work done and am extremely pleased with both. I definitely recommend this office for your dental needs.

Fantastic experience. Started seeing Dr. Barry for a dental emergency a few months ago. I tried contacting 10+ dentists in the area, none of them would see me. Crazy, right? I'm very happy those 10+ dentists declined me as a patient. I had an appointment scheduled with Dr. Barry the next day. Professional, knowledgeable, friendly staff. Nothing but good things to say as a new patient. And no, I wasn't provided a gift card to leave this review. I did so on my own free will.
