Dental Fillings in Baton Rouge

Fillings are required when there are cavities in the teeth. Your dentist will clean out the decay or cavity caused by bacteria and place a material called composite, which is bonded to your teeth. This material can be matched to the shade of your natural teeth. These types of dental fillings can be used to replace silver amalgam fillings as well. They are just as strong as real teeth and blend in very nicely with the rest of them. You will be able to talk, smile, and laugh without worrying that your fillings would be noticed. You will leave with healthy teeth that are also aesthetically pleasing!

What are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are used to repair cracked, worn or broken teeth. There are many types of fillings and thanks to modern dentistry, people can actually have a wide array of options to choose from such as plastic, silver amalgam, tooth-colored fillings, and composite fillings.

Your dental fillings will still depend on your teeth’s current situation and needs, as well as the degree of decay. Talking to your dentist will help you determine all of these factors to provide the best fillings for your teeth.

Types of Dental Fillings

Each filling has its own advantages and disadvantages. Even your dentist will be the one to provide you with the right dental fillings, knowing these pros and cons can also help you anticipate the feeling and strength of your fillings.

Cast-Gold Fillings

They last for 10-15 years, and even longer. They don’t corrode and can withstand chewing forces. In terms of aesthetic, gold fillings are more pleasing to look at compare to silver amalgams.

Cast-gold fillings also happen to be costly and require multiple trips to the dentist.

Silver Fillings

They have the same features as gold fillings, but they don’t look as pleasing to the eyes as the latter. Putting these fillings on can also destroy the teeth’s structure since a large space is required to have them placed.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

They blend to your teeth’s color, making it look natural. They’re versatile and don’t require a larger gap for your teeth. Unlike gold and silver fillings, they’re not durable and are vulnerable to cracking.

Patients here at Tiger Smile Family Dentistry are pleased with our dental treatment of large and small cavities. We customize each dental fillings treatment depending on the needs of our patients. Through this, a gentler procedure is more feasible to help achieve desired results.

We Have Dental Fillings Available for Your Teeth

Tooth Colored Fillings

At Tiger Smile Family Dentistry, we take the time to sit down with our patients and discuss the right procedure for them. We will take into consideration the extent of the repair that must be done to your tooth and we also want to know your dental history and other details that can contribute in helping you feel more comfortable with us.

A dental filling is a restorative material that is used artificially in order to restore the function of missing tooth structure. This type of fillings matches the color of your teeth.

Metal-Free Fillings

Our dentists will assess your condition first whether a metal-free or composite filling is the ideal type for you. For metal-free fillings, these can be color-matched and are ideal to be used on the front teeth and other more visible teeth. They are used to repair chipped, broken or cracked teeth.

There's nothing I could say but they did an amazing work compared to other dental facilities here in Baton Rouge. My dental fillings are long-lasting and they also educated me about proper oral care.
