Composite (tooth-colored) fillings are used to restore your teeth with a natural, beautiful aesthetic. Composite fillings are used to repair teeth affected by minor decay and damage. Our experienced dentists, Dr. Nicole Holmes and Dr. Dan Holmes, may recommend a composite dental filling to remove the damaged portion of the tooth and prevent further decay or damage. We also offer composite fillings to replace old metal fillings. Composite fillings are a wonderful choice in restorative dentistry because the color of the resin matches your natural tooth color, allowing for natural, beautiful results. To learn more about the benefits of our composite dental fillings in Fort Collins, Colorado, please call or visit us at Holmes Dental.
A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if a tooth has been damaged by decay (for example, if it has a cavity) or suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function, and return your smile to good health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite fillings.
The process for placing a dental filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentists will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth, then clean it to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the area with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened by our dentists for a lasting restoration.
If one of your teeth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and schedule your next appointment with our dentists and team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
