Fillings are one of the simplest and most effective ways to treat cavities and tooth decay and thanks to tooth-colored composite material, we are able to provide our patients with composite fillings that do not leave silver spots on your teeth! Unlike gold or silver amalgam traditionally used for fillings, composite fillings are specifically color-matched to your teeth, giving a seamless, natural appearance to your smile.
Made up of a ceramic and plastic compound, composite fillings bond easily to the surface of your teeth, restoring shape and contours after cavity treatment or for cosmetic enhancements. Whether you are suffering from a cavity, have a tooth fractured from trauma, or just want to change the appearance of your smile, tooth colored fillings present an easy, effective, and attractive treatment for a number of dental conditions.
Receiving a composite filling is a routine procedure at our Hixson, TN, office and a process we can complete in a single visit. Along with being more holistic and mercury-free, composite fillings are some of the most durable available and are able to last for many years. Better yet, composite fillings can accomplish more than eliminate cavities or tooth decay and can also repair fractured or cracked teeth and are used as cosmetic enhancements to change the shape, size, and color of teeth. During your procedure, your tooth is treated for decay (if needed), then the composite material is precisely placed, then shaped and polished to restore strength, function, and shape to your tooth!
