Tooth Colored Fillings

Do you have a cavity or an old metal filling that needs to be replaced? Our composite fillings in Jacksonville, FL offer the perfect bridge between cosmetic dentistry and minimally invasive solutions for a healthier smile.

What Are Composite Fillings?

Dr. Rittenberg prefers to use tooth colored composite fillings for Jacksonville, FL patients instead of traditional amalgam (metal) ones. These ceramic materials allow us to match the color of your filling to the shade of your natural teeth. Plus, the material bonds closely to your enamel so that less tooth structure has to be altered during the treatment process.

Symptoms of Tooth Decay

How can you know whether you have a cavity that needs to be filled? Because not all areas of tooth decay are painful, be sure to let Dr. Rittenberg know if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Sensitivity when you eat something sweet, such as a dessert or drinks with artificial and natural sweeteners
  • Something feeling “off” with a specific tooth
  • A rough surface that you can feel with your tongue
  • Noticeable aesthetic changes in the tooth’s appearance
  • Food catching inside of or between teeth

Diagnosing Cavities Earlier, for Less Invasive Treatment

Dr. Rittenberg implements low-radiation digital radiographs to screen for signs of tooth decay (and other diseases) before symptoms are visible during a visual exam. This early screening makes it possible to treat cavities when they are as small as possible, preserving healthy tooth structure around them. For most people, a set of films are taken about once per year.

If it’s been longer than six months since your last dental exam, contact our dentist in Jacksonville, FL today to schedule an appointment! Our composite fillings are just one example of the proactive and cosmetically pleasing restorative treatments that we have to offer.
