Our dentists may recommend a dental filling to repair teeth which have had a cavity or sustained minor damage from chipping or fracturing. Fillings literally “fill in” the damaged area of the tooth to restore your smile and oral function.
At Great White Dental, we use only composite fillings to repair your smile. Composite fillings are made of a tooth-colored resin material, and are carefully selected to match your smile and produce natural-looking results for your smile. In addition to being more aesthetically pleasing, composite fillings also promote better oral health long-term, as they require less removal of your original tooth structure to place and bond to your tooth structure more effectively than silver fillings.
Dental fillings typically require just one visit to place. During your appointment, our dentists will thoroughly clean your tooth, removing all traces of damage and decay. The filling material is then placed, shaped to match the contours of your tooth and hardened for a lasting restoration. Finally, we will polish the tooth to complete your treatment and restore your smile to full beauty and function.
