How Smile Solutions Helps Protect Your Teeth From Further Decay
What Is A Dental Filling?
Fillings are a way to restore a tooth that has been damaged by decay and bring it back to its normal shape and function. When Dr. Clothier places a filling, he will first remove all the decay on the tooth and clean the area. Then he will place composite material. This does not mean that you can stop brushing and flossing though. Without proper hygiene habits, decay can come back.
What Are Fillings Made Of?
Fillings are made of different types of materials. Dr. Clothier places composite resin material, which can be matched to the patient’s natural tooth color.
