Barely Noticeable Fillings
Fillings are your best defense against the progression of minor to moderate tooth decay. Composite fillings replace the void in the tooth left by a cavity, once it has been removed, with a strong, tooth-colored restoration.
Comfort and Confidence
Composite fillings are made from a mix of resin and fine glass particles. They are highly recommended for most fillings today. They provide several advantages, including:
- Less drilling than traditional silver (amalgam) fillings
- Color-matching for a natural appearance
- Bond to the tooth for strength
- Smile and speak with confidence
Sometimes, if you are in need of a larger filling, other treatment options may be more beneficial. In that event, we are happy to discuss alternative options.
How Fillings Are Placed
If you have a cavity, we work hard to ensure a positive experience during your filling appointment.
The affected area of the tooth is cleaned and the composite resin is placed. The resin is cured with a light in a matter of seconds and can then be easily shaped to match the appearance of your existing teeth.
After the procedure, you can immediately eat and drink as usual. With regular brushing and flossing, your composite filling and the rest of the tooth will continue to function properly.
