A composite (tooth-colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth is removed and then filled with a composite filling. Composite fillings, which are also known as white fillings or tooth-colored fillings, are white in color and blend in beautifully with your smile. White fillings are created using composite resin, which bonds to the natural tooth structure to strengthen the tooth and prevent further decay or damage in the future. Unlike amalgam fillings, which are silver in color, composite fillings contain no mercury or other harmful metal components. White fillings in Germantown, Tennessee are an excellent option for restoring decayed or damaged teeth.
The process for placing a composite dental filling typically requires only one visit to our comfortable dental office. Dr. Kizer and Dr. Smith, our experienced dentists, will first remove the damaged or decayed portion of the tooth. They will clean the tooth and fill it with composite resin. To ensure that the white filling fits your smile comfortably and aesthetically, they will carefully shape and polish the filling.
