Fillings (tooth-colored and metal-free fillings)

A dental filling is a restoration that is used to artificially restore the morphology, integrity, and function of a tooth structure that has been damaged due to trauma or decay. Here at Just Dental, we offer 100% metal-free fillings made of composite. These are made to match the natural color of your teeth.

Composite fillings are also known as white fillings and have numerous advantages as compared to their silver/mercury counterparts. Mercury fillings are not only unappealing visually but also result in a weaker tooth structure by virtue of their design. Their edges can become weak, break or wear down, creating a perfect breeding ground for cavity-causing bacteria. These fillings can also leak and corrode, causing stains on the gums and teeth. With age and temperature changes in the mouth, these fillings contract and expand, and can eventually split.

On the other hand, with tooth-colored or white fillings, resin material is bonded to the teeth to create a superior, tight fit that adds to the natural structure of the tooth. The fillings look natural as they are made according to your tooth color. The resin used contains fluoride, which helps prevent tooth decay. The result is a beautiful smile with strong and protected teeth.

The procedure of getting a composite filling begins with the administration of local anesthesia. The tooth is then prepared by removing any existing decay or restorations. The tooth is cleaned and filled with the filling material. The filling is carefully shaped and polished to replicate the natural look and structure of your tooth. We may ask you to bite down to ensure that your teeth fit together properly after the filling has been placed. We will make adjustments until it is comfortable for you.
