Tooth-Colored Fillings – Montgomery, MN

Seamless Restorations for Beautiful Smiles

Close-up of nice smile For decades, dentists have used metal (amalgam) or silver fillings to restore teeth with decay. This method still works today, but the problem is that silver is the exact opposite color of your natural dental structure. That’s why Dr. Geoffrey A. Iverson offers tooth-colored fillings in Montgomery! Using the technology and materials that modern dentistry has to offer, he can restore tooth decay with fillings that seamlessly blend into the rest of your smile.

What are Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Illustration of tooth-colored fillingsA tooth-colored filling is a composite resin material, which is essentially a special mix of plastics. This material is made to match the exact shade of your natural smile and it can even mimic the way that your teeth reflect light. This composite resin is bonded to your tooth to fill, strengthen, and protect decayed dental structure. The end result is a strong filling that you won’t even notice as time passes.

What is the Tooth-Colored Fillings Process Like?

After your appointment is scheduled, you’ll come in to receive your restoration. First, Dr. Iverson will remove any damaged or decayed tissue from your tooth and isolate the area. Next, he will place composite resin in the decayed area to fill and protect it. Once your filling is in place, he will use a special heating lamp to permanently harden it. Lastly, he will adjust the height of your fillings and polish their surfaces to match your natural smile.
