What Are Dental Fillings?
A dental filling is a restorative dentistry treatment which is used to restore a tooth affected by decay back to its normal appearance, function, and stability. Any decay and bacteria will be removed from the affected tooth and will be filled using our tooth-colored composite. This will restore the structural integrity of your tooth and prevent further decay and damage from occurring.
Benefits of Tooth Colored Fillings
- Nearly invisible to the eye.
- Stronger than amalgam fillings.
- The procedure can be completed in one visit.
- Less risk of cracking/damage.
