Tooth-Colored Fillings in Birmingham, MI

Say Goodbye to Cavities

When bacteria build up in your mouth, it causes your teeth to decay. When decay spreads through your tooth, it can leave a small hole in the enamel called a cavity. Without treatment, cavities can cause tooth loss and other serious health complications. 

That’s why it’s vital to eliminate cavities as soon as they’re detected. If you have a decayed tooth, learn how we can restore its strength and appearance with a composite filling.

Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings

For many years, most dentists have used amalgam fillings as the standard way to treat cavities. While these restorations are effective, most patients don’t like their noticeable appearance or the fact that they contain mercury. 

At Birmingham Dentistry, Dr. Stone offers composite fillings made from a durable, tooth-colored resin that’s designed to match the appearance and strength of your natural teeth. All of our fillings are customized specifically for you to ensure maximum comfort and convenience.  Composite fillings don’t contain mercury, so you can rest assured that your oral health is protected as well.

Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

Our composite tooth-colored fillings offer several benefits that amalgam fillings can’t match, including:

  • Natural appearance
  • Customized specifically for you
  • Directly bonded to your tooth
  • Restores full strength to your tooth
  • Preserves more of your natural tooth structure

Placing Your Filling

In most cases, composite fillings can be placed in our Birmingham office in just one appointment. We’ll start by applying a local anesthetic to numb your tooth and ensure you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. Dr. Stone will also remove any decayed tissue from your tooth to eliminate the risk of infection. 

From there, Dr. Stone will bond the composite resin directly to your tooth and shape it for a seamless blend. Once your filling has been secured in place, your tooth will look flawless and function at full strength again.
