Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are used to restore a tooth  that is decayed or broken.

This takes one visit.  The tooth is numbed and prepared for the filling by removing all decay and possible chips or small cracks in existing fillings or in the tooth structure. 

When the tooth is cleaned of all decay the area is filled with the composite filling then cured by a light that hardens and sets the filling.  It is then adjusted and shaped.  The composite filling is matched to your existing  tooth shade to create a beautiful esthetic look.
