Composite fillings are tooth-colored restorations used to repair a tooth that has experienced minor to moderate decay or other damage. This type of restoration contains no mercury and, because the shade of resin can be matched to your natural tooth color, it is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The fact that composite fillings are tooth-colored makes it possible to also make repairs to the front teeth without distracting from your smile’s natural beauty. In addition, composite fillings chemically bond to the tooth, which provides exceptional support. We are pleased to offer composite fillings to give our patients the confidence they need in restoring their oral health.
The process of restoring a tooth with a dental filling involves our dentist numbing the tooth with a local anesthetic. Once the tooth is numb, she will remove the decay and damage from the tooth. The tooth will then be thoroughly cleaned, and your dentist will begin inserting the filling layer by layer. Once the tooth is filled, she will trim and shape the resin to help it fit comfortably with your bite.
