Tooth Fillings in South Euclid, OH
Daily oral health care, including brushing and flossing, goes a long way toward keeping your teeth healthy and free from decay. Cavities can still occur, though, and become a severe issue if left to spread. Dental fillings fix and fill the areas where tooth decay occurs and repair minor fractures in your teeth.
What Are Composite Dental Fillings?
Composite dental fillings use a liquid tooth-colored resin. When a tooth surface needs repair, such as if a cavity in a front tooth needs filling, our dentist cleans out the decayed area and fills it with the composite filling.
Once the filling dries and hardens, our dentist shapes the filling as needed and polishes it to a high shine, blending with the other teeth.
Advantages of Composite Dental Fillings
Composite dental fillings have several advantages, including:
- Cosmetic appeal
Composite fillings are very strong, and their durability makes them an ideal choice for back teeth as well as front teeth. Composite dental fillings last six years on average and benefit from easy repairs if a piece breaks or falls out.
Composite fillings use tooth-colored materials, so they match the surrounding teeth. The dentist also sculpts them to the texture of surrounding teeth, making them an ideal filling solution for front teeth with cavities or chips in the enamel.
Applying Composite Dental Fillings
At Bright Tiger Dental, our dentists complete a composite dental filling during a single appointment. Once the area in need of filling has been prepared and cleaned, the dentist spreads the composite resin on the tooth. The applied filler generally covers all four corners of the space.
