Dental fillings are a restorative treatment that corrects dental cavities. While metal amalgam fillings were once the industry standard, advancements in dental technology have provided many improvements, including tooth-colored fillings.
Dr. Rosenblatt proudly offers tooth-colored fillings using SonicFill™ technology. This approach delivers several benefits, including:
Inlays and onlays are another way to restore a tooth weakened from a cavity. Deeper cavities aren’t always a good fit for tooth-colored fillings.
Dr. Rosenblatt begins with an injection of a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout your visit. He then removes any decayed or damaged tooth tissue, taking care to preserve as much healthy tissue as possible.
He then uses the SonicFill platform to place the composite filling material into the prepared tooth. This system reduces the viscosity of the composite, making it easier to sculpt and shape. The composite quickly cures to a hard finish, completing the restoration.
You may notice some sensitivity in the treated tooth after your local anesthetic wears off, but there are no lingering negative effects. The entire process happens in just one visit.
Tooth-colored fillings don’t require any special care. Simply keep up a solid brushing and flossing schedule, and avoid especially hard or sticky foods that could place undue pressure on your fillings.
Dr. Rosenblatt checks your tooth-colored fillings during each routine dental exam. If you ever need to have a filling replaced, the process is much the same, only the existing filling must first be removed.
