When we find evidence of decay during a general checkup, we can make arrangements to treat you with a tooth-colored filling. The resin material that we use provides a more attractive appearance than metal, and it is also able to provide superior support by bonding directly with your enamel.
To fully treat your tooth, we will first remove infected tissues and clean the affected area. From there, we can prepare this space for the application of the resin material. The material is applied in liquid form so that we can carefully shape it to fit the affected area while maintaining a natural appearance. It is then treated to accelerate the hardening process. This work can be completed in just one visit!
The composite resin material that we use to create and place fillings is able to match your enamel’s color and texture to blend in upon being placed. The material is also biocompatible, which means your enamel will bond to it and provide a remarkably secure hold.
