At Smiles Plus Dental Care, we use fillings to treat cavities and tooth decay. While an amalgram (metal) filling will fix the tooth, composite fillings will provide a more natural look to your tooth while treating the cavity and stopping further decay. A composite filling is custom matched to the color of your teeth and is made from a mixture of high quality plastic and quartz.

We use composite dental fillings to:

-Repair damaged teeth which may be chipped, broken or worn down.
-Reshape teeth by closing gaps.
-Protect teeth by filling in the cavity to prevent further decay.
-In some cases, a composite filling can be used as an alternative to a dental crown.

During your consultation, our highly trained team at Smiles Plus Dental Care will do an examination, take x-rays and go over all of the options with you to meet your individual needs. We start the filling process by carefully eliminating any bacteria and decay on the tooth. We will use specialized composite material and dental adhesive to fill in the spaces caused by dental decay. Then we will stabilize the filling with a composite bonding material.
