About Tooth-Colored Fillings
One of the critical reasons to go to a once a year dental exam is so our dentists at Reunion Dental Care can spot problems, like cavities in the teeth, gum diseases, and enamel decay in their first stages. Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite resin fillings, can fill and seal an area of the tooth that has been infected with a cavity. Tooth-colored fillings may be used to repair cracked and broken teeth, and areas of the teeth that are worn out from nail-biting, misuse, and teeth grinding. Unlike out-of-date amalgams, tooth-colored fillings are created from a composite resin that is dyed to blend into the natural teeth for fillings that retain the normal appearance of the teeth. A filling is a, straightforward fix at our Commerce City, CO office by our dentists. With ideal care, a filling can seal the teeth for near 10 years.

"The customer service is excellent: the staff is so welcoming and kind. I had two visits already and each time, I felt well taken care off. Each office staff, technician or specialist really know they are doing. I really felt like their goal was to get me the best for my problem and my situation, rather than getting the most that the insurance can: that's the culture of people before profit. I've never felt so happy to be at a dentist appointment; I'm looking forward to my next one."- F.N. / Google / Feb 19, 2020

What to Expect
A filling can be completed while at Reunion Dental Care with the patient under local anesthesia for any discomfort or anxiety. Once the patient is prepped, our dentists will use a drill to accurately take off the affected area of the tooth enamel. After that, our dentists will etch the tooth with an acid gel to safely bond the filling when it is placed. The resin is put on and hardened with a laser light. Our dentists will continue to brush on layers of resin and harden them with the light until the tooth is strong and sealed. Any leftover resin can be cleaned with the drill for a level finish.
After the composite resin filling is on and dried, our dentists will polish the resin for level edges. Once the numbing agent has worn off, the patient usually has sensitivity to temperatures, tastes, pressure, and additional sensations. This sensitivity is short-lived and should not be noticeable for more than two weeks. The patient should start a consistent home mouth care program, including brushing, flossing, mouthwash, in addition to on-going professional cleanings and exams at Reunion Dental Care. Our dentists will monitor the situation of the dental filling at each visit and help the patient understand when they need a fresh filling.
The majority of dental insurance providers pay a portion of the cost of a dental filling whether it is a first dental filling or a replacement for an older amalgam filling. Reunion Dental Care will aid each individual in comprehending their dental insurancecoverage and their financial responsibility at their appointment. For patients who don't have insurance coverage, our dentists provide a variety of financial plans through Reunion Dental Care in Commerce City, CO.
