Composite fillings are used to aesthetically repair damage caused by tooth decay. Tooth decay can cause holes, or cavities, in the surface of the tooth. Dr. Reyering may recommend composite fillings, which are created using composite resin, to repair cavities and restore the health of your smile.
Composite resin is a tooth-colored, durable material that we will match to the natural tooth color for a dental filling that blends in beautifully with your natural teeth. Composite dental fillings are also known as white fillings or tooth-colored fillings because of their color.
To place a composite filling, Dr. Reyering will first gently remove the decayed portion of the tooth. They will then clean the tooth and fill it in with composite resin.
By carefully shaping and polishing the dental filling, they will ensure that it fits your smile comfortably. Composite fillings are usually completed in just one visit to our dental office. Composite fillings can restore the health and function of the tooth, as well as enhancing the beauty of your smile.
