Tooth-Colored Fillings

With the introduction of new and improved dental materials, Dr. Suman Vidyarthi and Dr. Nanditha Vivekananthan can offer their patients the long-lasting, beautiful results possible with realistic-looking tooth-colored fillings. If you have a cavity, chipped tooth, or an old filling that our dentists need to replace, we can help resolve the problem with durable white tooth fillings that blend seamlessly with your smile.

Why We Choose Tooth-Colored Fillings

Dr. Vivek and Dr. Suman enjoy designing smiles that are strong, healthy, and beautiful. At Renaissance Family Dentistry, we believe in helping our patients find cost-effective solutions. Tooth-colored composite fillings are a cost-effective, conservative treatment option that creates seamless repairs and corrects minor cosmetic flaws.

It is always better to fill a cavity sooner rather than later so that it doesn’t spread and cause further tooth damage. But having a healthy, attractive smile you’re proud to show off is important too. For this reason, we offer aesthetic tooth-colored fillings at our Durham dental office to restore your oral health and leave you with a beautiful smile.

Tooth-colored fillings mimic the natural translucency of tooth enamel because the material is a composite or blend glass and resin particles. Our dentists customize your filling by choosing the perfect white shade to blend seamlessly with your smile. They then expertly shape and mold the material to match the contours of your tooth for an invisible repair.

Help Preserve Healthy Tooth Structure

At Renaissance Family Dentistry, we believe in taking the most conservative approach to dental treatment. When you have a cavity or broken or worn teeth, Dr. Vivek and Dr. Suman look for the solutions that resolve the issue and leave as much healthy tooth structure as possible.

Because of the way we place tooth-colored fillings, we don't need to remove much of the tooth's structure to create a strong repair that restores its function and appearance.

With proper dental care, your tooth-colored filling can last for about 5-7 years.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

If you have minor cosmetic smile flaws like chipped or broken teeth, our dentists can also use tooth-colored filling material to conceal the problem. Referred to as dental bonding, Dr. Vivek and Dr. Suman build up the damaged part of the tooth in the same way they do for a filling. The material is custom-shaded to match the existing tooth structure and built up in layers so that it matches the shape of your tooth and creates an invisible cosmetic repair.
