Dental Fillings

Treating Cavities with COMPOSITE FILLINGS

For some, no matter how well you brush or floss you may have to deal with cavities at some point in your life.  Factors like the foods you eat, the types of bacteria in your mouth, and your genetics among others all contribute to your risk of tooth decay.  

If you do get a cavity and require a filling, we offer natural looking white fillings made from durable composite material to restore areas of your tooth affected by decay. For those who are more sensitive to chemicals, we offer BPA-free and fluoride-free options as well. 

Do you need a Composite filling?

If you’re suffering from teeth that are sensitive to hot and cold, pain when biting or chewing, soreness on one side of the mouth, or have a chipped or cracked tooth, you might need a filling.  
Left untreated, a cavity or damaged tooth may become severely infected and painful. Fillings offer a simple solution that is designed to eliminate pain, remove decay, and make your tooth as good as new, just like a natural tooth.

Benefits of Tooth-Colored FIllings

  • Preserves more of your natural tooth structure
  • Made from tooth-colored composite resin that is chemically bonded
  • Durable — they’ll last for years
  • Designed to protect your teeth from further decay

What to expect from your dental filling Procedure

Step 1

The dentist will gently numb your mouth — if you’re nervous, ask about sedation options like laughing gas.

Step 2

Relax while decay is carefully removed and the surface of your tooth is prepared. Because you’ll be numb, this process will be pain free!

Step 3

The composite resin filling material will be placed into the prepared tooth and bonded.


Step 4

Before you know it, your cavity will be gone and your filling will be all finished.
