If you have tooth decay, Dr. Kang and Dr. Cho may recommend a dental filling in Fairless Hill, Pennsylvania, to restore the health of your tooth. Our dentists will remove the damaged section of tooth and fill the area with the dental filling material. At Smile Oxford Valley Dental Associates, we utilize composite dental fillings, which are white.
Advantages of Composite Dental Fillings
Composite dental fillings have many advantages to you and your smile. The shade of the filling material can be matched to that of your natural teeth. Because of this, they are very aesthetic. Composite fillings are a good choice for the front teeth. Composite fillings bond to the structure of your tooth, which provides greater support for the filling. In addition to being used to treat tooth decay, composite fillings can be used to repair broken, chipped, or worn down teeth.
Composite Dental Filling Placement
Before placing your dental filling, our dentists will numb the area. The decayed portion of the tooth is removed and the area is tested to make sure that all damaged material has been taken out. The area is then cleaned of bacteria and debris. Your composite filling is then placed in layers. As each layer is applied, it is cured and hardened with a special light. Once all of the layers are in place, our dentists will shape, trim, and polish the restoration.
