Tooth-Colored Fillings in Greenwich, CT

A filling is a used to restore the structure, strength and function of a tooth that has been compromised due to trauma or tooth decay. At the office of Greenwich Smiles, we provide composite fillings which are made to match the natural shade of your teeth.

Tooth-colored fillings are also known as composite or white fillings and have a number of advantages in comparison to their amalgam-based counterparts. Amalgam fillings not only compromise the look of your smile but also weaken the tooth structure due to the way they are designed. The edges of mercury fillings can wear down or become weak and can cause further decay. These fillings are also prone to corrosion and leakage, which could stain the teeth and gums. Due to their metallic nature, they can contract and expand with temperature changes in the mouth and eventually split.

Tooth-colored or composite fillings, on the other hand, are made using resin material which is bonded to the teeth to create a well-fitted, natural-looking filling that adds to the strength of the tooth.

The process of installing a composite filling is typically conducted under the effects of a local anesthetic. The tooth is cleaned and prepared by cleaning of existing decay and removing existing restorations. Once the tooth is clean, composite material matching the shade of the tooth is placed in the damaged area and carefully shaped to replicate the tooth structure. Once the process is complete, we check your bite and make any adjustments necessary to ensure that you feel comfortable.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Tramposch is so lovely. Since moving to the area a year ago, I pushed off finding a local dentist and would drive hours out of the way to go to the one I felt comfortable with. When my wisdom teeth started to grow in a few months ago, I was in a great deal of pain. I called Dr. Tramposch's office in hopes of getting an appointment. Although he was booked for the day, he managed to squeeze me in and did everything he could to ensure I didn't leave the office in pain. He continued to call me and check in on how I was doing for up to two weeks after. I can say I've found my new local/favorite dentist office that I truly enjoy going to."

"My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Tramposch for close to 15 years, and he also takes care of our 3 kids' dental needs. He is consistently voted a top dentist by his peer group and has referred me to equally competent specialists for any issues related to wisdom teeth, etc. Dr. T is very flexible, patient, and always works well with the insurance companies to ensure that we are reimbursed properly. We never have to wait, and he deals expertly with any issues that arise. He also does a great job with our 5 year old son who is afraid to have his teeth cleaned. Most of all, he and his staff are very pleasant and great to visit twice a year. Highly recommend!"

"I love Dr. Tramposch!! He is professional but fun, especially with our daughter and always very kind. Every time I go there he always puts me at ease and listens to my concerns. He is very thorough and takes his time when addressing what the next step should be (if any) and answers my questions in ways that I can understand. I always leave feeling taken care of, he is a great dentist. His new dental assistant Vira is so delicate with cleaning my sensitive teeth! And Diana is such a sweet girl, always cordial on the phone. I recommend this practice a million times over!"
