Tooth-Colored Fillings

At the office of Heresi Dental Care, we understand that damaged and decayed teeth need extra care, and patients are always looking for restoration options that not only protect the health of the teeth but also look natural and attractive.

Fillings are used to replace those parts of a tooth which have been damaged or lost due to trauma, decay or wear and tear. In the past, teeth were filled using dark amalgam fillings. Nowadays, these are rapidly being replaced with more natural-looking, tooth-colored dental fillings that are made of composite resin. Composite fillings can be made to match the color if the dentin in the teeth so that they look completely natural.

Tooth-colored fillings not only offer aesthetic advantages, but they are also stronger than their metal counterparts. Metallic fillings or amalgams merely rest on a tooth and do not have the ability to bond with the tooth. With advancements in dentistry, a lot more has become known about the interface between the inner layer of the tooth, called the dentin, and the outermost, hard layer, called the enamel, and the bond between them. This has led to the discovery and development of fillings that create a stronger, more protected connection between the enamel and dentin and are much more comfortable than traditional fillings. Our high-quality, tooth-colored fillings recreate and restore your tooth structure in a way that it not only looks natural but also responds naturally, allowing forces from your bite to pass through the tooth easily and naturally.

For more information about metal-free, natural-looking fillings, please contact us at (540) 249-1849. We have two convenient Fredericksburg locations, and our offices boast state-of-the-art amenities such as massage chairs and flat-screen TVs in patient rooms.
