Cavities, one of the most common dental problems, are created when bacteria eats away at your dental enamel. In the past, dental cavities were filled with a material called amalgam, which is a mixture of metals, including silver or mercury. Now we know that amalgam fillings do not fuse fully with the teeth, and the mercury may be dangerous to your general health. At SEDA Dental in Boynton Beach, FL, our dental team offers tooth-colored fillings made from a composite resin to fill and protect cavities. We can also remove old metal fillings and replace them with tooth-colored fillings for a safer and better-looking treatment for cavities.

Tooth-colored fillings typically seal the area of decay in the enamel of the tooth after it has been cleaned out. Composite resin is a versatile material that can be used to correct other concerns with your teeth, including cracks or wear on the enamel by teeth grinding (bruxism). Since the composite resin is colored to match your natural teeth, fillings can be used on both the front and back teeth for a seamless result. If you have metal fillings, talk to a member of our team about having them removed and replaced with tooth-colored fillings.
What To Expect
Receiving a filling with composite resin at SEDA Dental is generally a quick treatment. The area surrounding the cavity will be numbed with a local anesthetic to minimize your discomfort. Other forms of sedation can be discussed if you have any anxieties or fears to help keep you relaxed during the procedure. As soon as you are prepared, the affected enamel is treated with a special drill that will be selected based on where the cavity is located in the tooth and the level of decay. After the enamel is cleared away and the tooth is cleaned, the cavity will be filled with the composite resin material and hardened. The composite resin will be polished so it feels comfortable and matches your natural teeth.
You should be able to get back to your normal day after your filling is done, but you might have some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures for several days. You may take over-the-counter pain medicine to minimize discomfort or inflammation, but you should not have any major issues. If after a few days the filling feels uneven or high, please contact our office. Your tooth-colored filling can be kept clean by following a normal home oral care routine with daily brushing and flossing. When you return for your annual dental examination, we will assess your filling and decide if it needs to be repaired or replaced at any point.
Tooth-colored fillings are a common treatment for cavities that are usually covered in part by dental insurance. A member of our team will contact your insurance company to determine your exact coverage before calculating your out-of-pocket costs. If you do not have insurance, we can talk about the payments accepted by our office during your consultation, as well as medical financing options.

At SEDA Dental in Boynton Beach, FL, cavities can be addressed with dental fillings. Our dental team matches the color of your natural teeth so you get a healthy, beautiful smile. If you suspect you or a family member has a cavity, contact our office to schedule a dental examination.
