Composite Tooth Fillings
For decades, “silver” dental fillings were the go-to for cavity repair. However, the mercury contained in these fillings is known to be toxic.
Our tooth-colored fillings are a non-toxic, non-metal alternative to traditional methods and allow us to match your filling with surrounding natural teeth. Composite fillings are highly durable, affordable and can last a long time with proper care and hygiene habits.
Do you currently have silver amalgam fillings? Approved patients can have traditional metal fillings removed to be replaced with our safer, composite tooth fillings.
Tooth Filling Procedure
At our Katy dental office, our tooth-colored composite fillings can be placed in just one visit. During your appointment, we will remove any tooth decay and bacteria; the affected tooth will also be cleaned. Once this has been completed, the cavity will be filled with our composite resin material and smoothened and polished for a beautiful, seamless appearance.
Although cavities are preventable, they are unfortunately very common. Routine dental examinations will allow our dental professional to spot decay early and provide necessary treatment, ensuring the decay doesn’t worsen and spread.
