The most common way to restore a tooth with minor decay or damage is to fill the cavity with a dental filling. Tooth-colored fillings are the best option for treating most cavities.

The process of applying a tooth-colored filling involves the removal of any damage or decay and any existing filling material in the tooth. Once the tooth has been cleaned, the new filling material will be carefully applied. This will seal off any cavities or voids in the enamel and fill in the structure of the tooth. Once the tooth-colored filling has hardened, it will provide structure, integrity and strength for the tooth. It will then be shaped and polished to give you a natural appearance.
Tooth-colored fillings are also used for restoring chipped, cracked, fractured or decayed teeth, to help teeth look straighter, to close gaps and to correct other minor imperfections related the shape, size or color of your teeth. Composite fillings also do not release any harmful metals or toxins into the body, making them substantially safer than traditional amalgam fillings.
Tooth-colored fillings are a quick and simple fix to restoring teeth that have minor damage or decay.
