Dental fillings are common restorations used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage caused by decay. They can also be used if a tooth has experienced cracking or chipping. Fillings allow the tooth to return to healthy, normal use, often after only a single appointment.
To place a filling, one of our dentists will first need to remove any decayed or damaged areas of the tooth. Once the tooth is clean, composite filling material is placed and shaped to match your tooth’s natural shape. Finally, this material is hardened and cured with a special light to help ensure years of comfortable use.
Fillings are a highly-effective and conservative way to restore health and function to a damaged tooth. If you would like to learn more about composite dental fillings or need to schedule an appointment with our Stapleton and Denver dentists, please contact our team. We are anxious to care for your smile.
