Bonita Springs, FL Dental Fillings by Dr. Keith Morse

Dental fillings at Bonita Bay Dental with Dr. Keith Morse include gold, porcelain, and composite. The strength and durability of traditional dental materials make them useful for situations where restored teeth must withstand extreme forces that result from chewing, such as in the back of the mouth.

Newer dental fillings include ceramic and plastic compounds that mimic the appearance of natural teeth. These compounds, often called composite resins, are usually used on the front teeth where a natural appearance is important, but they can also be used on the back teeth depending on the location and extent of the tooth decay.

Dental Fillings

Several factors influence the performance, durability, longevity, and expense of dental restorations, including:

  • The components used in the filling material
  • The amount of tooth structure remaining
  • Where and how the filling is placed
  • The chewing load that the tooth will have to bear
  • The length and number of visits needed to prepare and adjust the restored tooth

Before your treatment begins, Dr. Keith Morse will discuss with you all of your options and help you choose the best filling for your particular case. In preparation for this discussion, it may be helpful to understand the two basic types of dental fillings — direct and indirect.

Dental fillings offer a great cosmetic alternative to older metal fillings. They replace damaged or decaying parts of the tooth as a normal filling would. However, they are color-matched to blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth.

The benefits are not just cosmetic, because the composite adheres to the tooth it provides better protection against decay and supports the remaining tooth structure. This gives you natural-looking fillings which will last for years to come; contact Bonita Bay Dental today for more information.
