Tooth decay affects patients of all ages. If left untreated, it may lead to cavities. And if cavities are left untreated, then tooth loss or gum disease may be experienced.
Dental fillings are a common treatment that can help restore teeth affected by cavities. We use tooth-colored, composite resin fillings so that patients can retain their teeth’s natural appearance.
The Dental Filling Procedure
During all regular checkups and exams, we look for decay and areas of demineralization, which are precursors to cavities. The treatment consists of custom-tinting a small amount of composite resin and bonding it into place. We then shape and polish it so that it appears natural.
