Tooth-Colored Fillings

Dentist in Bridgeton, MO

At the dental office of Dr. Kevin Burgdorf, DDS, we believe in preserving the natural beauty of your smile even when dental decay occurs. Tooth decay is a common issue that affects many individuals, but its repair shouldn’t compromise the appearance of your smile. Located in Bridgeton, MO, our practice specializes in composite dental fillings that not only restore your teeth but also maintain their natural look.

Why Choose Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings, made of composite resin, offer a modern solution to cavities by blending seamlessly with your natural teeth. Unlike traditional metal fillings, these restorations are designed to match the color and texture of your teeth, ensuring that your fillings are virtually invisible to the naked eye.

Advantages of Composite Fillings:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Composite fillings are meticulously matched to your tooth color, providing a natural-looking repair that enhances your smile.
  • Conservative Treatment: Less tooth structure needs to be removed compared to amalgam fillings, preserving more of your natural tooth.
  • Durability: Modern composite materials are strong and durable, capable of withstanding the demands of everyday chewing and biting.
  • Bonding to Tooth Structure: Composite fillings bond directly to the tooth surface, strengthening the tooth and minimizing the risk of breakage.
  • Minimized Sensitivity: Composite fillings are less sensitive to temperature changes, providing a more comfortable experience.

The Tooth-Colored Filling Procedure

Your comfort is our priority. The process begins with numbing the affected area to ensure a pain-free experience. Dr. Burgdorf then carefully removes the decayed portion of the tooth. The composite resin is then applied in layers, each layer being cured with a special light to harden the material. The filling is shaped to match the contours of your tooth and polished, leaving you with a restoration that feels natural and enhances your smile.

Beyond Aesthetics: The Health Benefits

Choosing tooth-colored fillings isn’t just a cosmetic decision; it’s a health-conscious choice. By opting for composite resin, you’re selecting a material that’s compatible with your body and avoids the potential concerns associated with mercury in amalgam fillings.
