Tooth Colored Fillings

Our Dentists want to keep your smile healthy and beautiful. So when cavities sneak in to steal your smile, they may recommend tooth colored fillings. In years past, dark, obvious amalgam was the filling material of choice. However, because of advances in modern dentistry, a cavity can now be replaced with tooth colored fillings.

After gentle removal of decay, we will tint the composite resin filling to blend with your existing teeth. We will work with you to match your natural teeth color. We will place the resin material, then cure it with a special light and sculpt the tooth colored filling to maintain your proper bite. Fillings will last a lifetime as long as you have regular cleanings and exam appointments thorough out the year. Tooth colored fillings gives patients a confident smile that they need. For patients with any dental anxiety while getting their composites, they can request nitrous oxide or our free virtual reality goggles to help them relax.

Financing Options For Restorative Treatment

We understand dental treatment can sometimes be costly for some patients. Dental treatment for fillings can sometimes be financed through our in-house dental payment plan options or through Care Credit. You can apply on line for both. Or you can wait until your examination appointment. An estimate will be given to determine if financing is needed to treat your cavities. Most payment plan options for restorative treatment will have an immediate approval or non approval notice so you can start your treatment right away. You will leave the appointment and know what your down payment and monthly payments will be. So you can start on the same day or a future date that works better for you.
