Tooth-Colored Fillings in New York, NY

Dr. Boyd Can Repair Your Tooth

At Healthy Chelsea Dental, we use tooth-colored fillings to eliminate decay, protect your tooth, and restore your oral health. Discover how our exceptional New York dentists can use a simple and easy filling to get your smile back on track.

What Is a Composite Filling?

A composite or tooth-colored filling is used to repair a tooth that’s affected by decay, cracks, fractures, and more. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will carefully be removed and filled with a composite filling.

Dr. Boyd will match the color of the filling material to your natural teeth to ensure your restoration seamlessly blends in with your smile. Our tooth-colored fillings are considered more aesthetically suited for use in your front teeth or other more visible areas of your mouth.

As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. But they’re very durable and will give you a beautiful smile for many years to come.

Reasons to Get a Filling

Our New York practice may recommend tooth-colored fillings for a number of reasons, such as:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Closing spaces between teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Worn-down teeth

Placing Your Filling

Our exceptional dentists can place your composite filling in as little as one appointment by following these simple steps:

  1. While the tooth is numb, your dentist will remove decay as necessary.
  2. Space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed.
  3. If the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication will be applied for added protection.
  4. The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function.

It’s normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when composite fillings are first placed, but this will subside shortly after your tooth acclimates to the new filling.
