Repair Tooth Decay With Composite Fillings

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite fillings, are an aesthetically pleasing and durable alternative to traditional metal fillings. At Harmony Dental of Sherman Oaks, we use tooth-colored fillings to restore decayed or damaged teeth while maintaining a natural appearance.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Custom Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are made from a blend of composite resin materials that are matched to the color of your natural teeth. This allows the filling to blend seamlessly with your tooth, providing a virtually invisible restoration.

The process of placing a tooth-colored filling involves removing the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth, cleaning the area, and applying the composite resin in layers. Each layer is hardened with a special light, and the filling is then shaped and polished to ensure a comfortable bite and a smooth surface.

Aesthetic and Functional Advantages

In addition to their aesthetic benefits, tooth-colored fillings offer other advantages. They require less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to metal fillings, and the composite resin material bonds directly to the tooth, providing additional support and stability. Furthermore, tooth-colored fillings are less sensitive to temperature changes, reducing the risk of tooth fracture or sensitivity.

If you have a cavity or are unhappy with your existing metal fillings, our dental professionals can evaluate your situation and determine if tooth-colored fillings are the right solution for you. We are committed to providing high-quality dental restorations that prioritize both function and aesthetics.
