Over time, old fillings can can break, crack, and otherwise deteriorate causing damage to your teeth. Many of our patients also have issues with the unsightly appearance of these deteriorating fillings.
The process for replacing fillings takes place in two steps—first, we will carefully remove all existing filling material from your teeth and clean your teeth to accommodate your new fillings. Once this is complete, we will refill your cavities using a strong, durable dental restorative material.
Depending on the number of fillings and the difficulty of removal, a complete filling replacement may take place over one or several visits.
Tooth Colored Filling Material
In the right circumstances we can use tooth colored filling materials that are a specially formulated dental composite designed to look and function like natural tooth structure. When applied, this material is a soft, putty-like consistency, allowing us to precisely fill in your cavities and gently mold a natural looking shape to your filling.
Once we have shaped the tooth completely, we will apply a specially calibrated light to harden and cure the newly repaired tooth. Finally, we will make any necessary adjustments to the size and shape of your tooth, and then polish the completed filling to create a smooth new surface.
