Tooth decay often results in cavities that need to be filled. If you have a tooth with a cavity in it and it is left untreated the tooth will decay further, this could lead to the need of more treatment and the possibility of losing the tooth altogether.

Composite Fillings

Composite tooth-colored fillings are made of a mixture of glass and plastic. They form a smooth barrier around your tooth. After preparing your tooth for the fillings, the dentist places the composite material into the tooth, one layer at a time. We will use a special light to harden each layer before putting on the next layer. One of the many advantages of composite fillings is they can be matched to the color of your teeth.

Preparing the Tooth

Before we fill any tooth, we examine it visually and use dental instruments to check it further. In some cases, we take x-rays to see the entire structure of the tooth more clearly and avoid potential pitfalls.
