Take a Look at How Dental Fillings
Can Help You

Dental fillings are primarily used to restore teeth affected by cavities. They are placed in the cavity to restore the tooth's shape and structural integrity and prevent the growth of decay. Although fillings were made from metals in the past, we have recently turned towards tooth-colored biocompatible fillings, owing to all their benefits.

Tooth-Colored Fillings - At Spa Dental, we use dental-grade ceramic and composite resin as the material for fillings. Both these materials are highly customizable and offer excellent properties. Since they are tooth-colored, they do a great job of staying indistinguishable from the tooth it is used on, which keeps the fillings from being noticed when you smile or talk.

What are the Advantages of Dental Fillings?

  • Fillings provide excellent durability even though you bite and chew food every day.
  • Their color can be matched with that of the natural enamel precisely, which keeps them indistinguishable from the tooth they are used on.
  • Fillings seal the cavity perfectly, which keeps microbes and food residues from entering the cavity and causing reinfection.
  • The procedure for placing fillings is very simple and can be completed in a single visit to our practice in San Jose.
  • Fillings are quite long-lasting.
  • Tooth-colored fillings do not cause any adverse reactions from the tissues of the teeth, such as what happens with metal amalgam fillings.
  • Their expansion and contraction rate is negligible, preventing any tooth damage when you consume hot or cold foods/beverages.

How Are Fillings Placed?

When you arrive at our dental practice, we will conduct a detailed screening of the mouth to spot the cavities on the teeth. First, the decay and tartar deposits on the teeth surfaces will be removed by scaling. This process is carried out using an ultrasonic scaling device with a stainless steel metal tip vibrating at ultrasonic frequencies. It will be combined with a jet of water to wash away the microbial residues. Next, the dentist will prepare the filling material by matching it with the color of the enamel.
