Fillings | Dental Office Del Rio Texas

Composite Fillings and Bonding

We place composite fillings when a tooth has suffered from minor cracks or decay. Composite fillings are tooth-colored fillings that we match closely to the color of your existing teeth. Your composite filling will be placed in a single appointment at our office, where the dentist will remove the compromised portion of the tooth, clean the remaining healthy tooth, and place the composite filling for optimal results.

Procedure

The dental procedure for your composite filling is usually completed in just one appointment at our office. When the dentist is preparing your tooth, he will remove all present tooth decay and then thoroughly clean the remaining healthy tooth. If the decay was close to the nerve of the tooth, the dentist may also apply a special medication to help make your treatment more comfortable. Once the tooth has been prepared, your composite filling will be placed, shaped, and polished for optimal functional and aesthetic results.

After your composite filling has been placed, the dentist will give you specific advice on how to care for your newly restored tooth. Remember that it is normal to feel a little sensitivity near the filling immediately after the treatment. If you would like to learn more about composite fillings or your options for restoring your oral health, we invite you to give our Del Rio, TX dental office a call today.
