Composite Fillings Forest Hills, NY

Don't live with a damaged tooth. Call us to see if composite fillings are the best choice for you.

Composite Fillings

If you need a dental filling to protect your teeth or prevent further infection, then consider composite fillings. These fillings provide a natural appearance by being tooth-colored. Along with appearance, composite fillings can help to restore your teeth and smile.

Teeth have layers that are protected by the enamel, the visible portion of the teeth. The dentin and enamel are the inner portions of the teeth that can get infected from exposure to plaque or other substances in the mouth.

In most cases, it is crucial to remove the infected portion of the inner layers while preserving as much of the tooth as possible. A composite filling can fill the tooth and space to prevent further infection. Unlike other forms of fillings, a composite filling can blend in with surrounding teeth.

During an examination, we will determine if the tooth is strong enough for a composite filling. Once verified that this is the most effective course of action, we will then begin the treatment process. We will take every necessary precaution to ensure you don't feel anything during the procedure.

Once complete, we will then go over how to take care of your filling during recovery. Fortunately, a composite filling will not require excess oral hygiene methods. Thus, you will be able to continue your normal oral hygiene routine without issue.

If you are unsure if you need a composite filling or want to learn more, give us a call today. Our team is here to restore your teeth and your smile.
