Tooth-Colored Fillings in Miami

A Flawless Smile with Fillings that Look Completely Natural

Interested in replacing old silver teeth fillings for natural-colored fillings in Miami? Are you conscious of your laughter and holding back? At Biscayne Dental & Facial Aesthetics, conveniently located on Biscayne Blvd near Downtown Miami and Miami Beach, we do the best dental fillings in Miami! Dr. Julio Hernandez places white fillings on teeth due to decay or fracture.

Why Should I Choose Tooth-Colored Fillings?

There are several advantages to choosing tooth-colored fillings:

  • Tooth-colored fillings are highly aesthetic
  • Composite fillings help hold the tooth together better
  • The cost to replace a silver filling with a tooth-colored filling is cheap

In recent years, filling materials have been substantially improved making them safer, stronger and more aesthetic. Although silver amalgam (silver filling) was the dominant choice years ago, today we have several other preferred options for tooth-colored restorations including white composite filling materials and cementable resins and porcelains that match the patient's tooth color. Look at our silver filling replacement, before and after photos below.

It is important to bear in mind that placement of these types of fillings will require anesthesia and may cause tooth sensitivity initially.

How is a Filling Replaced?

The procedure to replace a silver filling requires first placing anesthetic in the area. The old silver filling is removed under high volume suction with the patient protected so as not to inhale the dangerous mercury that is released. Our office in Miami uses every precaution to protect our patients during the removal of the old silver fillings. This makes the procedure safe for the patient and the doctor. Once the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, it is prepared using a special protocol specifically developed by Dr. Julio Hernandez to make the restoration strong, durable and long-lasting. Our unique protocol prevents patients from experiencing excessive sensitivity after the procedure.

Decayed teeth require fillings as well to restore their strength and health. First, the decayed portion of the tooth is removed from the sound tooth structure. The resin filling is then shaped to match the look and feel of natural teeth. Today, many modern materials can be used to mimic the color and texture of natural teeth.

Porcelain Tooth Fillings

Dental inlays and onlays are some of the strongest and most lifelike dental restorations available. The teeth are prepared in much the same way we would for a standard filling. An impression is sent to a dental lab and the final porcelain restoration is delivered within 2 weeks.

Advantages of porcelain fillings include:

  • Much stronger than resin fillings
  • Decreased sensitivity
  • Lasts longer than resin fillings

Disadvantages of choosing porcelain fillings include:

  • Requires 2 appointments
  • Requires anesthesia
  • Higher initial cost

Decayed teeth may require an inlay to restore strength and health to the natural tooth structure. The decayed portion of the tooth is removed from the sound tooth structure. An inlay is fabricated to match the look and feel of your natural teeth. This restoration often resembles a puzzle piece. In most cases, the restoration will completely blend into the natural tooth structure.
