Tooth-Colored Composite Dental Fillings in Orange Park, FL
As a family and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Betty Klement understands how her patients’ confidence is affected by the appearance of their teeth. No matter what dental concern she’s treating, Dr. Klement always takes aesthetics into consideration.
From major oral health issues to cosmetic improvements, our Orange Park dentist prefers composite fillings over amalgam for their ability to blend in seamlessly with the rest of the smile.
Detecting the Cavity
Dr. Klement is able to detect cavities with the use of advanced digital x-rays and our iTero® intra-oral scanner. This technology, along with regular visits to our Orange Park office, allow for early intervention, preventing the need for more complex restoration procedures.
We use composite fillings to repair teeth that have small-to-moderate amounts of decay. Our dentist also replaces existing silver fillings that have become worn and are no longer completely sealed. Since composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of your smile. These fillings give your teeth a much healthier appearance because they are not as visible as silver fillings.
Filling the Tooth
Dr. Klement uses the Wand® to painlessly apply local anesthesia so that you will not experience any discomfort. The decay or old restoration will be removed and we will select a filling material to match your tooth. Our Orange Park dentist prepares the tooth so that the filling can be bonded in place. This technique ensures a complete seal between the tooth and the filling. If properly maintained, these fillings can be a long-lasting solution.
In addition to using tooth-colored composite resin to restore existing cavities, Dr. Klement has earned a reputation for being a perfectionist when it comes to repairing composite fillings that were never sealed correctly.
We Care About Your Peace-of-Mind
Many patients feel safer receiving composite fillings as opposed to amalgam due to the absence of mercury in these tooth-colored restorations. Dr. Klement is happy to offer this treatment and advanced dental restoration technique so that her patients can feel confident about both their overall health and the look of their smile.
We offer a one year guarantee for any composite filling and, in the rare case of restoration failure, will provide a free replacement.
