Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings

Embrace Natural Aesthetics and Dental Health with Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored dental fillings, also known as composite fillings, offer a harmonious blend of aesthetics and functionality. At Family Dental Group, led by Dr. Annette Dusseau, we take pride in providing seamless smile restoration through modern dental solutions. This comprehensive article delves into the world of tooth-colored fillings, their benefits, the treatment process, and how our practice offers financial assistance options to ensure your oral health and beautiful smile remain uncompromised.

Understanding Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings

Tooth-colored dental fillings are composed of a composite resin material that closely matches the natural color of your teeth. This makes them an excellent choice for restoring decayed or damaged teeth without compromising your smile’s aesthetics.

Why Tooth-Colored Fillings?

  1. Aesthetic Appeal: Tooth-colored fillings blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, creating a virtually invisible restoration that enhances your smile.
  2. Preservation of Tooth Structure: These fillings require less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to traditional amalgam fillings.
  3. Reduced Sensitivity: Tooth-colored fillings are less likely to cause temperature-related sensitivity often experienced with metal fillings.

The Tooth-Colored Filling Process

  1. Consultation: Your journey to tooth-colored fillings begins with a consultation at Family Dental Group. Dr. Annette Dusseau will assess your dental health, discuss your concerns, and determine if tooth-colored fillings are suitable for you.
  2. Preparation: The affected tooth is cleaned, and any decay or damage is removed. The tooth is then prepared by etching the surface to create a strong bond with the filling material.
  3. Layering and Bonding: The composite resin material is applied in layers, with each layer being cured using a special light. This ensures a strong and durable bond.
  4. Shaping and Polishing: Once the filling material is applied and cured, Dr. Annette Dusseau will shape and polish the filling to match the contours of your natural tooth.

Financial Your Dental Care

At Family Dental Group, we understand the importance of accessible dental care. We offer various financial assistance options to ensure your treatment fits within your budget:

  • Preferred Provider for Most Insurance Plans: We pride ourselves on being a preferred provider for most insurance plans, eliminating out-of-network worries.
  • Flexible Payment Options: We accept major credit cards and cash payments for your convenience.
  • CareCredit Financing: Through CareCredit, we offer financing options to make your dental treatment affordable without compromising on quality.

Frequently Asked Questions about Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings

  1. Are tooth-colored fillings as durable as metal fillings?
    Tooth-colored fillings are durable and can withstand normal chewing forces. They may need replacement over time, but advancements in material have improved their longevity.
  2. Do tooth-colored fillings require special care?
    Tooth-colored fillings don’t require special care. Maintain good oral hygiene practices by brushing, flossing, and attending regular dental check-ups.
  3. Can tooth-colored fillings be used for front teeth?
    Absolutely, tooth-colored fillings are versatile and can be used on front and back teeth. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, making them ideal for visible restorations.

Amazing Customers

This is the best dentist office I have ever been to! I used to be scared to go to the dentist because of previous terrible experiences – I feel comfortable at family dental!!
Shannon Brewer
I recently got a mouthful of Crowns, done by Dr. Macy. She was incredible. She contacted me regularly (even on her days off!) to check on me. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Macy, Dr. Dusseau (our Dentist, who was on vacation) and Timmye (Assistant). My teeth look amazing. Thank you Family Dental!
Jesse Poole
On trip to Yellowstone I broke a tooth. Family Dental to the rescue. Thank you Dr. Knable, Kendra, and all the staff who were friendly, helpful, and totally professional. I needed a crown and it was all done in a few hours. The crown feels perfect and I can smile again. Thank you!
Gigi de Jong
Family Dental Group had been taking care of my teeth for a few years now and I tell everybody to go there. I not only feel cared for when I get my teeth cleaned but also empowered to continue caring for my own oral health. In my experience, they are honest in their recommendations and care; not always ambling for the upsell. The front desk employees are usually quite approachable.
Kezia Halverson
Both the dentist and hygienist were very kind and extremely understanding and helpful about dental anxiety. I didn’t feel judged or uncomfortable at all about the state of my teeth. I will absolutely be coming back if I have any more issues with my teeth. The best dental visit I have ever had, even though my filling turned into a tooth extraction (that they did right there in the office, as comfortably as possible, after offering a call to an oral surgeon if I decided I would feel more comfortable under sedation). I’m glad I stuck it out and let them take care of it!
Katelyn Diggs
Annette Dusseau went above and beyond to accommodate my medical needs by placing a temporary crown and helping with an expedited permanent crown. She was thorough and explained everything she was doing. I highly recommend this office!
