Invisible Dental Fillings

No one wants to see a filling when they smile. We can repair teeth damaged by decay with “invisible” dental fillings made from composite resin. Tooth-colored fillings are matched to your natural teeth, offering an alternative to traditional silver (amalgam) fillings.

Here at Rinaldi Dental Arts, we offer invisible dental fillings that both repairs damaged and decayed teeth and ensures the aesthetics of your smile. Tooth-colored fillings are the perfect alternative to metal fillings, filling in your tooth with a material that is custom blended to perfectly match the natural color of your existing teeth. Unlike a metal filling, the invisible filling will not stand out. Instead, it will simply “blend in” with your beautiful smile. These dental fillings are made from composite resin, which is long-lasting and gorgeous.

If you are looking for a more natural appearance, composite fillings are a fantastic option for a new filling or even to replace an existing metal amalgam filling. They are suitable for both front and back teeth and are customized to match the needs of each individual patient.

About Invisible Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are used to restore a tooth when there is damage caused by decay. After your decay has been removed and the tooth has been cleaned, the empty space is then replaced by the filling material, which can be a metal amalgam, porcelain, or composite resin. Fillings are most commonly used to repair cavities and are often used after root canal treatment to repair and strengthen the tooth.

Invisible dental fillings or white fillings are made from composite resin. One of the primary benefits of choosing composite fillings is that they offer the ability to customize the color of the filling to match your natural tooth. The filling is made to blend in well with your tooth, whether you have had your teeth whitened or you have a slightly darker color. Often, patients will choose to whiten their teeth before having a composite dental filling placed.

The Fillings Procedure

Having a filling placed is usually a very straightforward procedure. It often takes only a few minutes to complete the placing of the filling, and one visit is usually all that is required for a simple filling. In some cases, we will place more than one filling in a single visit. The first step is to clean and prepare the tooth by removing any decay, as well as plaque, tartar, and any existing old filling. The filling is bonded to your tooth using special lights to cure it, which ensures that the filling strengthens the structure of your tooth. Dr. Rinaldi will then shape and polishes your filling so that it conforms to your bite and gives you a natural-looking smile.

The Benefits of Choosing White Fillings

Composite (white) dental fillings offer some significant advantages to those looking for solutions to damaged teeth. Composite resin can be chosen to match the color of your natural teeth. Once the filling is in place, it is virtually “invisible” against your natural tooth. It is much less obvious than a metal filling, and it bonds very well to the tooth too, offering extra strength and protection. Less drilling is required to place a composite fitting, compared to a metal filling, which helps to protect the tooth and increase comfort.

Rinaldi Dental Arts restores your teeth with invisible dental fillings, which look almost exactly like your real teeth. No one will know that you have a filling, except for your dentist and you.
