Cosmetic Fillings and You

How cosmetic dental fillings from your dentist in Carver, MA, can enhance your smile

Did you know that a dental filling can actually enhance the beauty of your smile? It’s true! Cosmetic dental fillings can turn a mouth full of unsightly, bulky metal fillings into a smile of pristine beauty.

Dr. Phillip Bleak at Carver Smiles in Carver, MA, offers a wide range of dental care services, including cosmetic fillings to enhance your smile.

The secret to cosmetic fillings is the material. Cosmetic fillings use composite, a liquid resin that can be matched to the color of your teeth. In fact, once a cosmetic filling is placed, it is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Consider these amazing reasons why you should choose cosmetic fillings:

  • They are naturally beautiful; all your friends will see is your beautiful smile, not your fillings.
  • They are a strong tooth restoration; cosmetic fillings use a bonding material that actually cements the filling to your tooth structure, helping to hold your tooth together.
  • They are completely metal-free; cosmetic fillings offer an outstanding solution for people who are sensitive to metal and don’t want a metallic taste.
  • Cosmetic fillings are also comparable in cost to other dental filling materials, and they are covered by most dental insurance companies.

Your cosmetic filling procedure begins with your dentist removing decayed tooth structure, and preparing your tooth to receive the composite. Then, a special etching material is applied, which creates small openings for the composite to adhere to. A bonding agent is then applied to your tooth.

Your dentist will match the composite to the color of your teeth and sculpt the liquid composite to match the natural contours of your teeth. The liquid composite is then hardened with an ultraviolet curing light. The result is a beautiful, strong filling that enhances your smile.
