Tooth-Colored Fillings From Dr. Syed in Wilmington, DE

It Blends
Right in With Your Smile

A filling is a treatment dentists use to eliminate tooth decay. This will protect your tooth and eliminate the pain. In the past, dentists would often use metallic-colored fillings that were effective but not very attractive.

If you have a cavity, Dr. Syed will use a filling made from tooth-colored composite resin to fix your tooth and make it work like new. We’ll do it without leaving a trace, so no one will even notice.

What Is a Composite Filling?

A cavity begins as a tiny hole, but it continues to grow as the infection eats away at your tooth. Dr. Syed uses the latest diagnostic tools to spot cavities early, often before they begin to cause pain.

Our composite fillings are made from hardened acrylic resin that’s mixed with porcelain or glass particles to make it shine like a natural tooth. Composite resin fillings offer a number of advantages for you:

  • They’re formulated to match the color of your tooth
  • They allow Dr. Syed to preserve a greater portion of the damaged tooth
  • They don’t contain any type of metal
  • They’re highly durable
  • They bond with the tooth, keeping out dangerous bacteria

Do You Need a Composite Filling?

If you notice any type of pain or discomfort in your mouth, call (302) 994-3093 right away. You could be suffering from a cavity or another issue that requires professional care. Dr. Syed at Delaware Star Dental will find the problem and address it right away.

Signs of a cavity include a throbbing toothache, pain while chewing, or sharp pains that come and go. You may also be experiencing sensitivity to hot and cold liquids. Discoloration or a visible hole in the tooth are additional symptoms of decay.

How to Protect Yourself From Cavities

Tooth decay is caused by bacteria that consume plaque, tartar, and debris.

The best way to keep your teeth free of decay is by brushing and flossing daily and visiting Dr. Syed in Wilmington for regular checkups. During your twice-annual professional cleanings, our oral hygienist will remove stubborn plaque to protect your smile.

One more important thing you can do for your smile is limiting the amount of sugary and high carbohydrate foods you eat, especially between meals. If you do snack on foods like candy, cookies, and chips, it’s a good idea to rinse your mouth with water afterward so it won’t stick to your teeth.
