Why Sacramento area patients often request tooth colored fillingsDental caries, or cavities, can affect anyone. This is the deterioration of the natural tooth enamel which can cause pain and discomfort if it reaches deep enough into the tooth and infects the dental pulp inside. Cavities can be large or small but will always require treatment. Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams of Sacramento will typically use tooth colored fillings in situations where cavities occur.
Tooth colored fillings are made of composite resin bonding that matches the shade of natural teeth. This is done to make the areas of decay repaired much less noticeable than they are with gold or silver amalgam fillings of the past. Also, composite bonding is more desirable than silver amalgam fillings due to the concern of mercury toxicity, appearance, and the fact that it does not contract and expand in the same way metals do. Composite tooth colored fillings also require less removal of the natural tooth structure and can help maintain the integrity of the tooth over time—even when decay occurs.
Many Sacramento area patients will request composite bonding fillings because they are the same color as their natural teeth and are extremely discreet in appearance. Not everyone wants others to know they’ve had dental work done, and when patients with silver amalgam or metal fillings smile, talk, or laugh, this may be noticeable. With tooth colored fillings, no one but you and your dentist need to know that you’ve had your tooth repaired due to decay. This can also improve the confidence patients need to take good care of their smile and avoid the progression of other problems down the road such as decay or disease.

Woke up with a horribly infected tooth on Friday morning. I had not established a relationship with a dentist since moving to Sacramento. Googled emergency dentists and was incredibly fortunate to find Dr. Adams listing. Called them on a Friday afternoon as a new patient and was seen within an hour!!! Two teeth had to be pulled. Dr Adams and Dr Kristen were awesome. I didn't feel a thing....teeth were out quickly and painlessly. Everyone there is incredibly sweet and caring. Everything is spotless and clean - could not have asked for a better experience. I have found my forever Dentist.

They have cared for my teeth for 20+ years. Always warm and very trustworthy. I'd like to share my most recent visit, since it reflects the quality of care they have always provided. So my front tooth had a chipped bottom and my back tooth had a broken filling. First off, he fixed the broken filling without a problem. Next, Dr. Adams walked me through the options we had for the chipped tooth. I asked various questions to address my concerns. His explanations were comforting. For both my teeth issues, he gave me a full idea of what to expect. In the end, both teeth were cared for and function just fine now. No more worrying! I feel comfortable trusting him with caring for my teeth.

Like always had a great experience with Dr Adams and Dr Adams. Had two fillings done and was in and out in just over an hour, I liked how they took the time to explain the whole procedure to me and answered all my questions about my teeth. I also enjoyed their good background music. The staff was very friendly and helpful in answering all my billing questions and setting up my next appointment. See you guys next time!!
