Repair Teeth with Tooth-Colored Fillings

traditional metal fillings tooth colored fillingsFillings are most often recommended to repair teeth that have been damaged by minimal decay or small cracks and chips. When we notice one of these concerns during a checkup, our dentist may even be able to fill your tooth on the same day. In addition to diagnosing decay in its early stages during dental checkups, we may even be able to find areas at risk for decay using a handheld laser early cavity detection system. Traditionally, dentists used silver, amalgam fillings, but in order to provide our patients with the highest quality and most cosmetically appealing results, we use composite resin fillings. Don’t hesitate to contact Kwon Dental right away if you experience dental decay or damage.

The Filling Procedure

First, our dentist may numb the area around the tooth to ensure patient comfort. Then, we remove and smooth any decayed or damaged parts of teeth. Next, we apply the tooth-colored resin directly to the prepared tooth and shape it in position to restore form and function, and use a curing light to harden the filling. Finally, we polish and seal the tooth fully renewing patients’ smiles.
