Used to prevent the spread of tooth decay or correct any cosmetic damage, a filling is just one of the ways our dentists preserve your health. Before placement, any decay must be removed. We offer local anesthesia to ensure maximum comfort for our patients.
Composite resin filling can be customized and are the most aesthetically pleasing option. Composite fillings allow for more conservative tooth preparation during the filling process and create a bond to the remaining tooth structure. This helps to maintain the structural integrity of the tooth. Composite resin is ideal for repairing chipped or cracked teeth, filling in a tooth gap, correcting dental discoloration, protecting any exposed tooth root from gum recession, or changing the shape of teeth. Patients may also choose composite resin for cavity fillings as they are bonded to the teeth in layers and require less drilling away of the natural tooth.
