Composite Fillings

Natural looking, durable tooth colored fillings

Tryon Family Dentistry will place natural looking and durable tooth colored fillings. A dental filling can serve both restorative and cosmetic purposes, treating tooth decay, damage, and minor imperfections. Our TFD team will use quality materials for composite dental fillings that are color matched to your natural smile for an aesthetically pleasing result. Composite resin fillings are custom made to the exact color of your natural teeth, creating a more natural appearance. These types of tooth fillings are less noticeable than other materials.

Dental fillings are a conservative treatment option. They can help restore a damaged tooth back to normal function and shape. When caught early, tooth decay can be treated with a dental filling avoiding a potential tooth extraction. A dental filling can also be used to repair chipped, fractured, or worn teeth. The goal of dental fillings is to protect the tooth from any further damage and preserve the natural tooth to support your long-term oral health.

What to Expect

Although many patients become slightly anxious at the thought of a dental filling, it is a relatively simple procedure that should produce minimal discomfort with the use of a local anesthetic. A dental filling is typically completed during a single visit to our office. In cases of tooth decay, the infection will be removed from the tooth and the area will be thoroughly cleaned. A custom colored composite resin will be carefully placed in the affected area and smoothed to create a natural surface that will feel comfortable while protecting and strengthening your tooth.

Once the filling material is placed it will be cured using a special light and then polished for a smooth texture and natural luster. This will provide you a natural looking and comfortable surface for normal chewing and speaking. One of the key benefits of composite fillings is that they create a tight seal that prevents future decay and infection. Your tooth filling should last for many years with good oral hygiene and routine dental care.

Replacing Metal Dental Fillings

Do you have old, dark fillings that are impacting the appearance of your smile or breaking down and coming out? Tryon Family Dentistry can replace fillings with new, white fillings for a quick smile makeover that will also improve your dental health. Many patients with a traditional amalgam filling (metal filling) are choosing to replace them with white fillings to fix their smile. Some patients have sensitivity to metal in their mouth and report having a metallic taste or discomfort because of their metal dental filling. Replacing old fillings can not only improve the integrity of your dental health, but provide an instant smile makeover.

“Amazing office. The dentists here do great work. Replaced four of my front teeth with veneers and worked with me (for free) when the treatment plan didn’t go exactly as expected due to my chronic bruxism. They always explain what they’re doing, and why. I thoroughly trust this team with my dental care.”

“I just moved to the area and needed to find a new dentist. After looking through tons of reviews, I settled on this dentist, and after my visit decided that this place will be my new go-to! The doctor was fantastic. Was so thorough, took the time to explain to me what was going on with my teeth, always checking to make sure that I was doing okay, and was so friendly and caring. I would recommend them to anyone. I’ll be back.”

The Latest in Aligner Technology

What Is Invisalign?

Instead of relying on metal brackets and wires to move teeth, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners custom designed for each patient’s individual treatment plan. The aligners are designed to fit snugly over your teeth so they don’t interfere with your normal activities or your speech. Because they are clear, they are hardly noticeable and provide the utmost discretion during treatment.
