Composite Dental Fillings
White composite dental fillings are a non-metal alternative to silver amalgam. The tooth-colored composite material matches the surrounding natural teeth, making for a seamless repair. Although not quite as strong as amalgam fillings, white composite fillings are highly-durable. With proper oral hygiene habits, the fillings will last a very long time. Even approved patients can have their old metal fillings replaced with tooth-colored composite fillings.
Houston Dental Fillings Procedure
Dental fillings can be placed in one visit with little to no discomfort. Your Houston dentist will begin by removing decay from the affected tooth. Later, the surface will be cleaned and filled with the white composite filling. Once repaired, the treatment area will be smoothed and polished for a flawless appearance.
Cavities are a very common oral health issue. If found early, dental fillings are an effective solution for stopping the spread of tooth decay. If you’re in need of dental fillings, book an appointment at one of our Houston offices today!
