Tooth-Colored Fillings

If you’re like most adults, you’ve experienced some level of tooth decay. Caused by a bacterial infection, dental caries (cavities), can wreak havoc on your smile. Left untreated, a single cavity can spread, eventually eating away the entire tooth. To stop tooth decay in its tracks, we remove the affected area and restore tooth structure with safe, aesthetic tooth-colored fillings.

In the past, the only solution to tooth decay involved mercury/metal fillings, which detract from an all-white smile and may jeopardize your health. While the American Dental Association claims the amount of mercury in amalgam fillings doesn’t pose a threat to your health, we don’t take any chances. Our patients prefer a safe, natural-looking alternative – tooth-colored fillings.

Dr. Grinaldi will blend a putty-like substance that matches your tooth color. Once placed on the tooth and hardened with a curing lamp, the filling virtually disappears in the contours of your mouth. Because it bonds with your tooth surface, unlike metal fillings, the tooth-colored filling will strengthen your tooth and protect it for years to come.
