Here at Carreon Family Dentistry, we have chosen to use composite, or tooth-colored, dental fillings to repair and restore your teeth. Composite fillings have many advantages over amalgam fillings, including:
When you receive a composite filling, our dentist will carefully select a shade of filling material that matches your natural tooth color. Your damaged tooth will then be thoroughly cleaned and any damaged tissue removed before the filling is placed. We will then cure, or harden, the filling and polish it to complete your treatment. You should be able to receive your filling in just one appointment.
If you have any questions about composite dental fillings or would like to schedule an appointment with our dentist, give us a call today!
