If you experience frequent tooth pain or sensitivity to heat or cold, you may have some tooth decay or a cavity. If so, dental fillings can help alleviate your discomfort and save your tooth. Long gone are the days of using unsightly silver amalgam fillings. Our modern dental office opts for a stronger, healthier, and safer restorative solution with more aesthetically pleasing composite tooth fillings.
Dental fillings are a reparative dentistry treatment used to restore a damaged tooth back to proper function, healthy appearance, and strength. All decay is removed from the affected area, and the cavity is filled with a tooth-colored composite filling.
Today’s composite tooth fillings are constructed of a state-of-the-art material that creates a strong bond with the underlying tooth. The filling can also be crafted to blend in with the affected tooth, so it is practically invisible. The bonded composite material is used to repair cavities and cracked or chipped teeth.
