At Salem Creek Family Dental, we take great pride in providing top-quality fillings for our patients. By using the best materials available in our dental fillings, we can help ensure that they are safe, appear natural and offer exceptional performance.
When a cavity occurs, a filling will restore the tooth’s performance and appearance, and also prevent any fractures or breakages from developing in the tooth. Today, tooth-colored composite fillings are quickly becoming the standard for dental fillings. They are comprised of a mixture of plastic resins and silica fillers. This mixture is flexible, and it is designed to conform to teeth as effectively as possible. This allows the filling to have the same structural integrity as a healthy, natural tooth. Another important benefit of tooth-colored fillings is that we can even adjust the shade of the filling to match the natural tooth color.
Applying a dental filling is a very simple process that can be completed in just one visit at our practice. The procedure starts with cleaning out the tooth in order to remove any decay or bacteria. With the tooth clean, we carefully apply the composite filling to seal off any voids.
The substance will then be allowed to harden so that the tooth achieves the proper level of structure and integrity. To finish, we will shape and polish the treated tooth so that it achieves a more natural appearance. Overall, this process is excellent for restoring teeth with minor damage or decay.
