Composite fillings are a great option for repairing decayed or damaged teeth. If the tooth damage is not extensive enough to warrant the use of a dental crown, our skilled dentist may recommend a composite filling. Also known as white fillings or tooth-colored fillings, composite fillings are white in color and blend in with the natural shade of your teeth. This ensures that your smile will still look beautiful and natural after the filling is placed. Composite fillings are created from composite resin, which bonds with the original tooth structure, helping to strengthen the tooth.
The process for completing a composite dental filling in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, requires just one visit to Corey I. Johnson D.D.S., P.C.. First, Dr. Corey Johnson will carefully remove the decayed or damaged part of the tooth. The tooth is thoroughly cleaned, then filled with composite resin. After the resin is shaped to fit your tooth and your natural bite, it is hardened by using a special light. Composite fillings are durable and long lasting, so you can be certain that your restoration will last for years to come.
