About Tooth-Colored Fillings
Dental cavities are a common problem that develops when bacteria eat away at your enamel. Previously, cavities were filled with an amalgam material, which is a mixture of metals, including mercury or silver. Now we know that amalgam fillings don't fuse well with the teeth and the mercury can be dangerous to your general health. At Awesome Smiles, Dr. Tracy Provenghi uses tooth-colored fillings made with a composite resin compound to fill cavities and protect the tooth. We can also take out old metal fillings and replace them with composite resin fillings for a more reliable and attractive cavity treatment. Contact our El Paso, TX dental office to set up an appointment.
How Do Tooth-Colored Fillings Work?
Receiving a filling with composite resin at Awesome Smiles is typically a simple process. The treatment area will be numbed to minimize your discomfort. To help you stay relaxed during the procedure, stronger forms of sedation can be considered if you have any fears or anxieties. Once you are ready, the decayed enamel can be treated using a unique dental drill that a member of our staff will select based on the location of the cavity and the level of decay. Once the enamel is cleared away and the area is disinfected, the cavity will be filled with the composite resin and set with a special light. We will polish the filling material so that it matches your other teeth.
