Tooth-Colored Fillings Newton, MA


Dental cavities are a common problem that develops when bacteria attacks your enamel. Previously, cavities were treated with an amalgam material, a combination of metals, like mercury or silver. We now know that these fillings don't adhere very well with the enamel and the mercury can be hazardous to your overall health. At Newton Centre Dental in Newton, MA, our dental team uses tooth-colored fillings made with a composite resin to fill cavities and protect the tooth. We can also take out metal fillings and apply composite resin fillings for a more reliable and more attractive cavity treatment.

Best Candidates

Composite resin tooth-colored fillings usually cover the decayed area in the tooth once it is treated. Composite resin is a useful material that may be used to address other issues with your teeth, such as chips or excessive wear on the enamel by bruxism (teeth grinding). Since the material is tinted to blend with your teeth, fillings may be placed on the back and front teeth for a great finish. If you have amalgam fillings, talk to our dental team about getting them taken out and redone with composite resin.

What To Expect

Receiving a tooth-colored filling at Newton Centre Dental is usually a simple procedure. The treatment area will be numbed to help you feel more comfortable. Stronger sedation methods may be considered for any fears or anxieties to keep you relaxed. After you're ready, the infected enamel can be cleared away using a dental drill that will be selected based upon the location of the cavity and the amount of decay. Once the enamel is treated and the tooth is disinfected, the area will be replaced with the composite resin and set. We will then smooth the filling material so it matches your other teeth.

Had two of my teeth get fillings done by this office. Dr. Nar and Priya did a super fantastic job on explaining the procedure, prepping me and getting me comfortable, and doing the actual procedure. They made sure I was comfortable during the entire time. The front desk staff were also super helpful and explained the bill to me and reminded me of my next appointment. Overall, super awesome place. They take real good care of you and your teeth.

You will be able to return to your day once your tooth-colored filling is complete, but you may notice a sensitivity to cold and hot food and beverages for 1 – 3 days. You can use nonprescription pain medication to treat discomfort; however, you shouldn't experience any serious problems. If your filling seems high or uneven, please call us. Your filling should be cleaned and followed by a regular home care routine, including daily flossing and brushing. At your annual exam, we will check your filling to determine if it should be replaced or repaired.

Insurance Coverage

Composite resin fillings are a standard treatment for dental cavities that are typically covered partially by insurance. A team member will talk to your dental insurance company to understand your coverage so we can calculate your bill. If you don't have dental insurance, we will discuss the payment methods we accept at your appointment, plus information on medical financing.
