About Tooth-Colored Fillings

Cavities are one of the most common dental problems that are created when bacteria attacks your enamel on your teeth. In the past, dental cavities were filled with a material called amalgam, which is a combination of metals like silver or mercury. Now we know that amalgam fillings do not adhere very well with the teeth and the mercury can be dangerous to your overall health. At Martin Dentistry in Fishers, IN, we offer tooth-colored fillings made from a composite resin to fill and protect cavities. We can also remove old metal fillings and replace them with tooth-colored fillings for a safer and better-looking cavity treatment. To learn more, call our office today to schedule a consultation. Our experienced dentists, Drs. Matthew Martin, Stephanie Martin, and Lynn Marshall, look forward to meeting you.

What to Expect

The dentist offers patients a one-of-a-kind experience when undergoing a filling procedure. Prior to the procedure, the patient’s tooth is photographed and measured to create a filling that is comfortable and matches the shade of their tooth. The filling, made of resin, is then bonded to the tooth. The procedure seeks to create a filling that perfectly fits your tooth and covers the entire area that needs protection. This procedure can cause minor pain and discomfort, but most patients should be able to return to their regular routines.

Treatment Aftercare

Following the filling procedure, patients can expect the anesthesia to last at least 1 – 3 hours. Patients should be cautious in talking or chewing so they do not bite the inside of their mouth or tongue while the area is numb. The gums may also be tender or sore, but this will subside in a day or so. The tooth or teeth will be sensitive to hot or cold liquids and food, this is normal and temporary. Should patients feel any extreme discomfort or unevenness in the tooth after the anesthesia has worn off, please call our office immediately. Patients should follow all post-care instructions and take over-the-counter pain medication to ease discomfort if needed.
