Your mouth is full of bacteria, and when it collects in a film on your teeth, then it is called plaque. The plaque bacteria are harmful because they use the sugars in foods to create acids that eat away at your tooth enamel, causing decay. If you have a cavity in your smile, then you may need to receive a tooth-colored dental filling in Parma, Ohio.
Dr. Parag Kirpekar’s office offers tooth-colored dental fillings to improve the health and aesthetics of your smile. Our tooth-colored fillings are made out of either composite resin or porcelain and have a natural appearance. These fillings are matched closely to the color of your natural teeth. The procedure to receive a tooth-colored filling requires just one appointment at our office. During this appointment, our dentist will:
- Remove the compromised portion of the tooth
- Clean the tooth
- Fill the tooth with the tooth-colored material
- Shape and polish the material for optimal aesthetic results
Tooth-colored fillings are an excellent option for those with minor tooth decay. If you are interested in learning more about tooth-colored fillings or general dentistry, we invite you to give our office a call soon. We’ll be happy to answer your questions and schedule your consultation with Dr. Parag Kirpekar.
