Tooth-Colored Fillings

Do you feel self-conscious about old silver fillings that detract from your smile? Have you thought about having them replaced with fillings that match the rest of your teeth?

At our Reno dental office, our goal is to provide treatments like tooth-colored fillings that restore oral health and improve the look of your smile.

Why You Need a Filling

While they may seem like a pretty basic dental treatment, fillings are actually an essential service needed to maintain excellent oral health. Even with the best oral care, at some point you may still get a cavity. 

Once a cavity develops, it needs to be treated quickly to keep it from spreading, causing discomfort, and further damaging your tooth.

Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings

One of the advantages of using tooth-colored composite fillings is that they resemble natural tooth enamel. We can customize the shade of the material to blend beautifully with your natural teeth. Composite fillings blend so perfectly with your enamel that no one will know that you’ve had any work done. 

Because they look so natural, we use tooth-colored composites to resolve a number of esthetic dental concerns. We can:

  • Repair broken or cracked teeth
  • Fill in minor chips
  • Alter the shape of irregular teeth
  • Fill in gaps between teeth
  • Replace darkened or deteriorating silver fillings

Preserving Healthy Tooth Structure

Our job is to provide services that keep your teeth strong and functional for many, many years. No matter what treatment we provide, our goal is to preserve as much of your healthy tooth structure as possible. Tooth-colored composites help us achieve this goal since we need to remove only a minimal amount of your natural tooth to place a strong, resilient filling.

Your Treatment, Your Way

We want you to be an active participant in any treatment we provide at our Reno dental office. Dr. Barrett will carefully explain what the problem is and our options for fixing it. He will answer all your questions because we want to make sure you feel completely confident with your decisions about your dental treatment.
