Replacing Metal Fillings

If you have metal fillings, you may notice how they draw attention to the dental work you had done. You may also notice that they dull and discolor your teeth's enamel. Pleasanton Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Sean Anderson helps enhance his patient's smiles by replacing their metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings.

Replacing Metal Fillings

Dr. Anderson will examine your teeth and your current metal fillings. He will remove your metal fillings and make sure your tooth does not need any additional work done before placing the tooth-colored filling. Some teeth may need additional cosmetic dentistry procedures because metal fillings expand and contract causing stress that cracks the teeth.

The material used to fill the cavity is color matched to your natural teeth for a flawless end result. Dr. Anderson places the tooth-colored filling in several different layers. After each layer, a special light is used to harden the filling. Dr. Anderson will sculpt the filling after all the layers are placed in the cavity. The filling will look natural and match the shape and color of your tooth.

If you are interested in replacing your metal fillings and live in the Pleasonton, California area, please contact cosmetic dentist Dr. Anderson for a consultation about tooth-colored fillings.
