Tooth-Colored Fillings in Murfreesboro

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.

I had the BEST experience at Salem Creek Family Dental! I had an extremely painful toothache and was able to get in right away and Dr. Costello was AMAZING and so was her assistant Miranda!! They helped make the experience so relaxing it was almost enjoyable! And believe me coming from someone with severe "dentist anxiety" that is saying a lot! I had no pain at all even after the procedure! Dr Costello even called the next day to check on how things were going! I recommend this dentist office to everyone!

Dr. Costello really helped me out when I needed a mouth guard for grinding my teeth. She took the time to work with my crazy schedule and went the extra mile to let me know she was invested in my needs! Her office was so clean and welcoming, and both she and her staff are beyond kind. Thanks, Dr. Costello!
