When a tooth experiences decay or another type of damage, it is important to restore the tooth structure to ensure that the tooth stays strong and healthy. If the damage is minor to moderate, our dentists may recommend a composite dental filling in Cameron Park, California. A composite filling is made of a tooth-colored material called composite resin. Because the shade of the resin can be matched to your original tooth color, composite fillings are also called tooth-colored or white fillings. Another benefit of composite fillings is that they bond with the natural tooth structure, forming a lasting restoration that strengthens the tooth.
To place a dental filling, you will need just one comfortable visit to Country Club Dental. Drs. Sonny and Fara Afshar will first remove the decayed portion of the tooth and sanitize the tooth. The composite resin is then applied in layers and is cured (hardened) through the use of a special light. Once the filling is complete, your dentist will make sure it fits with your bite and will effectively restore your smile. We invite you to contact our dental office today to learn more about the benefits of composite fillings. We look forward to caring for your smile!
