Tooth-Colored Fillings in
Allen, Texas

A tooth-colored filling is a type of restoration treatment that is used to repair the damage caused by cavities and other minor forms of tooth decay. Since we use tooth-colored fillings, they will blend in seamlessly with the patient’s existing teeth.

Tooth-Colored Fillings in Allen

The most common reason to receive a tooth-colored filling is to restore the damage caused by a cavity. This oral health problem refers to a small hole or void that develops on a tooth’s chewing surface. The problem with cavities is that they will usually continue to grow in size, and they can be used by bacteria and food particles to access the inside of the tooth and cause serious harm. A filling works to seal off the cavity and prevent unwanted material from accessing the inner structure of the tooth. The earlier a patient receives a filling, the less likely they are to experience any major damage that could require more extensive treatment.

At Allen Dental Center, we provide tooth-colored composite fillings. These are called composite fillings because they consist of a composite mixture of plastic resins and silica fillers. This mixture will add to the overall strength and integrity of a tooth and help it remain strong and intact. This is very important for restoring the health of the tooth following a cavity. Additionally, these composite fillings are known for being extremely safe because they do not release any harmful toxins or heavy metals into the body like other types of dental fillings.

The first step when applying a dental filling is to clean out the tooth and remove any decay and existing filling material that is present. Our experts then apply the filling substance, making sure that the damage is sealed off. We will then allow the substance to dry. Hardening this composite material will provide the tooth with much-needed strength and support. The process is finished by polishing and shaping the filling material so that the tooth achieves a natural-looking appearance.

Great dentist office. I have been coming here for years! They have a great team of dentists, hygienists and office staff who treat you well. They care for your teeth and recommend only things that will help you keep your teeth lasting their longest. They do not try to sell you extras that you may not want or need. They book up fast but in an emergency they are there for me. Thanks Allen Dental!
