For damaged or decayed teeth, composite fillings are our most popular option for restoration. Not only do they offer fantastic strength and durability, but the composite materials are tooth-colored, so your filling will blend in perfectly with your smile! After Dr. E numbs the area where the filling is to be placed, he will remove any decayed portions. A substance is then applied to help open up the pores of your teeth for a stronger bond, and hardened and cured with a special light. Once this is complete, the filling is applied in thin layers to slowly form the complete filling. After the composite has hardened, the filling will be polished to be comfortable and fit your bite.
