Most people get at least one tooth cavity sometime in their life. In the past, dentists filled cavities with metal amalgam – the silver colored fillings.
Modern dentistry offers white metal-free composite fillings that are color matched to your existing teeth. The composite resin provides a durable filling that blends long-lasting strength and attractiveness.
Why do I need a filling?
Cavities are the most common reason people get fillings. In addition to repairing cavities, white composite resin is often used in our office for cosmetic bonding of cracked, broken or worn teeth.
What will the filling look like?
If you’re concerned about the appearance of your tooth fillings, we have good news. Dr. Head will carefully match the resin color to the color of your teeth, which makes it perfect for any area, even highly visible front teeth. When we’re done repairing the tooth, you’ll be pleased with the natural look and feel. In fact, it’s so natural, you may forget you have it!
How is a filling performed?
When you come to our Gilbert office to have your cavity treated, our dentists will remove the decaying area of the tooth and then fill it with white composite resin that is bonded to the tooth tissue. The bonding actually strengthens the tooth, making this a durable, attractive cosmetic dentistry option for repairing cracked, broken or worn teeth as well. Dr. Head will test the filled tooth to make sure the opposing teeth meet it correctly, and that it feels comfortable to you.
