What are Tooth Restorations?
Tooth colored restorations or fillings are also referred to as composites, because they are composed of a complex molecular structure of a resin matrix and fillers.
Composites or resins were introduced in the 1960’s, and have undergone continual improvements in durability, color stability, material handling qualities, and aesthetic properties. Tooth colored restorations are actually bonded to remaining tooth structure compared to silver/amalgam restorations, which are “locked” into tooth structure. This property of resin restorations makes them a very conservative approach to tooth restoration after caries removal.
How Do they Look?
Tooth colored filling material comes in a great number of colors (shades), and at Salgra Dental Group
in Pembroke Pines are matched to your individual tooth color. The materials used for front teeth have a high shine; whereas, the materials for back teeth are designed for strength — both look great! It’s nice that if you have a filling it can be virtually undetectable.

Same Day Dental Restorations
A new filling should feel natural, like your own teeth. After the anesthesia has worn away and you can feel your teeth and bite again, you should not notice anything particularly different. It should be smooth and comfortable. There is a period that you might feel some sensitivity to temperature after the restoration is placed. It is temporarily as with any other restorations when they are placed on teeth.
You can eat on tooth colored fillings right away (as soon as anesthesia is gone) compared to silver/ amalgam fillings, which there is a waiting period.
