Tooth-Colored Fillings in Sarasota, Florida

Over the years, dentistry has advanced and improved the technology, the techniques, and the types of materials we have available to choose from. One example of updated materials we use is composite dental resin, or tooth-colored fillings.

At the office of Dr. Michael Ryan, DDS, and Collin Ryan, DMD.

We offer caring, compassionate dentistry that makes you feel good about seeing us for your semi-annual preventive exams. When you keep up with these routine visits, we can spare you the discomfort, cost, and inconvenience of a problematic tooth.

The Beauty of Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored filling material is a composite of glass and plastic resin. This combination produces a translucent repair that is very similar to natural dental enamel. Better yet, the material can be custom color-matched to the shade of your teeth. The result is a repair that is so seamless, even you won’t be able to detect it in your smile!

The process we use to place composite fillings doesn’t require us to remove much of your tooth to create a strong, durable bond. The material is bonded directly to the surfaces of your tooth, and a curing light is used to set the filling using light energy.

Conservative Dental Bonding

Since tooth-colored resin looks so similar to dental enamel, it can also be used for a process called cosmetic dental bonding. This straightforward treatment enables us to perform repairs on teeth with slight cosmetic flaws.

During the procedure, Dr. Michael Ryan builds up layers of the material to rejuvenate worn down teeth, correct cracks and chips, and alter the appearance of uneven spaces or poorly proportioned teeth. The procedure is fast and efficient, and we can often perform several repairs in just one dental visit.

Other benefits of composite fillings

Aside from the cosmetic benefits that composite fillings offer, they are also less invasive than a traditional metal filling. In order to bond metal fillings more of the natural tooth structure needs to be removed. With composite fillings, we can remove less of the natural tooth and still achieve a strong bond.

The best time to treat dental decay is when it is first detected and still small. If you have a toothache or have some fillings you have been putting off we invite you to contact our Sarasota office!
