Tooth Fillings


Composite Resin Tooth Fillings

Next to dental stains, cavities are the most common issue among children and adults alike. While treating cavities is more complicated than removing stains, your dentist can still restore a cavity-stricken tooth with minimally-invasive treatment. Tooth fillings can repair most mild to moderate cavities, restoring the strength and integrity of the tooth while simultaneously relieving your toothache. At Sunny Smiles, we utilize tooth-colored composite resin to create discreet fillings that blend in naturally with your teeth.

The Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

Composite resin can be tinted to match your unique tooth color, but a more lifelike appearance is only one of the many advantages that tooth-colored fillings offer. The resin used to create the fillings also conforms better to the shape of a cavity, offering a sturdier restorative solution.

Also, unlike metal fillings, composite resin can be securely bonded to the walls of the cavity. This reduces the risk that the filling will separate from the tooth and allow oral bacteria to re-enter. If you currently have a metal filling, your dentist may be able to replace it with a more beneficial and esthetically appealing tooth-colored resin material.
