Dental Fillings Dana Point
A composite filling repairs teeth that are experiencing decay, cracks, or fractures. The affected enamel is removed and then filled with a filling made of composite material.
Along with silver amalgam fillings, composite fillings are one of the most common restorations for cracked teeth. The composite ones are tooth-colored, which means they can closely match the appearance of the natural teeth. For aesthetic reasons, they are used to restore the front, or more visible teeth, in the mouth.
Composite fillings are not permanent, so they will have to be replaced eventually. Dr. Rodd is a specialist in dental fillings in the Dana Point area, he can provide additional information on maintaining your restoration.
Composite Fillings Address:
•Closing space between teeth.
•Cracked or broken teeth.
Only a single appointment is required for the composite fillings to be placed. Before they are fitted, the space is cleaned and measured. If the decay occurred close to the nerve of the tooth, a special medication will be applied for additional protection. The filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished to provide your teeth with a natural restoration.
When your fillings are first placed, you may experience hot or cold sensations. This is normal and will subside after your tooth acclimates to the presence of the filling.
After the treatment, you will be provided with maintenance instructions to ensure your fillings provide beneficial results for as long as possible.
