Dental Filling Material

At Copperstone Dental we offer a variety of dental fillings to repair damaged areas of the tooth, including composite dental fillings. This dental treatment is ideal for those looking to repair their teeth while keeping the natural color. Unlike silver or gold fillings, composite fillings are made of a durable white resin material to replace the damaged tooth structure without the use of metals or mercury. Composites are often preferred as they can be used on the anterior and posterior parts of the mouth to withstand large amounts of pressure and impact. Similar to normal teeth, filling material can also become decayed by plaque buildup so its important to brush and floss them regularly.

Dental Filling Procedure

When Dr. M Tuft schedules you for a filling, he will start by using an anesthetic to numb the affected area before beginning the procedure. This numbs the area around the tooth to prevent any pain or discomfort. Next, Dr. Tuft will remove the decay from the affected area by cleaning in and around the tooth to ensure the area is clear. Finally, he will restore the tooth using the composite filling by rebuilding the tooth structure to imitate that of a real tooth. When the process is finished, Dr. Tuft will go over proper care for the newly restored tooth.
