Harmful bacteria on teeth can lead to decay. Untreated decay can cause further complications, such as pain or infection. Dental fillings are a safe and effective solution to help preserve your teeth.
Dental fillings are made of a tooth-colored, composite resin. This resin is strong, durable, and aesthetic. We gently remove decayed tissue and place your filling to help prevent further damage.
The procedure itself takes up to an hour, which makes it relatively quick. Local anesthesia is applied to numb the area so that you are comfortable throughout the process. The filling is placed specifically to the shape and function of your tooth.
We can help you decide whether composite resin fillings are right for you. To request an appointment, contact our office Lane Dentistry.
