Natural, White Dental Fillings

Do you have a cavity or area of tooth decay that keeps you from smiling and laughing?

Let’s face it, tooth decay can be unsightly, and many people suffering from tooth decay simply don’t like to smile big.

At Shining Smiles, we use natural-looking, white dental fillings in order to restore a damaged tooth back to its normal function and shape.

What are fillings?

Fillings are used to repair decaying teeth and restore functionality. While tooth-colored fillings made from porcelain or composite materials are most common, amalgam (metal) fillings are still used in some instances.

At Shining Smiles, we use tooth-colored fillings almost exclusively, as they are most aesthetically pleasing, and hold up well over time.

How are they applied?

Fillings are used to repair areas of a tooth that have been damaged due to decay. When getting a filling, you’ll have your decaying tooth matter removed, your tooth cleaned out, and then your filling placed. It’s a simple, straightforward process with little pain or discomfort.
