When people come in for fillings, we typically use the tooth-colored composite fillings. They come in any number of shades that we can match to your existing color. We get you numb, take care of the defects, put the filling in. That's pretty much the process.
It's important to be able to offer the different shades because folks these days are very conscious of how they look. We want the fillings to blend in with your tooth and not be noticeable.
- Composite fillings blend perfectly with your smile.
- The material bonds your tooth together, strengthening it.
- Composite materials are free of mercury and metal.
Since 1985, our dental office has been restoring and saving teeth with dental fillings. Put our experience to work for you today by calling 704-766-8662 to schedule your visit.
Dental Fillings Protect Your Oral Health
A tooth filling may not seem like a big deal, but it most certainly is. Fillings are needed to repair cavities in your teeth. A cavity occurs when bacteria on your tooth produces acid that eats away at your enamel. Eventually, the bacteria gains access to the inner part of your tooth, where it can cause infection and lead to extreme pain.
A tooth filling will:
- Stop the spread of bacteria
- Repair your tooth
- Restore health to your mouth
We’ll numb the area near the tooth so we can gently perform your filling without pain. You can also receive sedation if you’d like.
At our office, we rely on composite fillings to create the most beautiful and most functional repairs. No one will have to know you have a filling.
Don’t Wait to Repair Your Smile
Don’t try to convince yourself that your tooth repair can wait until next year. In doing so, you are putting yourself at risk for a tooth infection, which will require a root canal. Practice excellent oral health habits by having your dental cleaning every six months and taking care of problems early before they have a chance to ruin your smile.
