Most people are familiar with dental fillings as a common restorative option for cavities and other minor forms of tooth damage. At Gorelik Dentistry, we offer tooth-colored fillings that blend in beautifully with your natural teeth for an aesthetic, lasting restoration.

What are tooth-colored fillings?

Tooth-colored dental fillings are made of a material called composite resin. This material can be matched to the natural color of your teeth, so you can rest assured that your filling will blend in seamlessly with your tooth. In fact, no one will be able to tell that you have a filling at all!

If you and Dr. Julia Gorelik determine that your smile would benefit from a tooth-colored dental filling, our dentist will first gently remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth. We will then apply the composite material in layers, using a special light to cure the restoration. Finally, Dr. Julia Gorelik and her team will carefully trim, shape, and polish the filling to precisely and comfortably fit your tooth. This entire process typically requires only one visit to our office.

What are the benefits of tooth-colored fillings?

Tooth-colored dental fillings have several advantages.

• They are aesthetically pleasing so you don’t have to worry about silver fillings or dark lines by your gums.
• Tooth-colored fillings contain no harmful mercury, so they are safe for your health.
• Restorations created from composite material never react to hot or cold food or drink, unlike metal restorations.
• Tooth-colored fillings are an excellent long-term restoration choice, and they seal your teeth from bacteria to help avoid future decay.
