Fillings are a type of dental restoration that are especially useful for treating low to moderate tooth decay or damage. Fillings reestablish tooth structure and aesthetics by filling in cracks and holes caused by cavities or trauma. Our dentist offers natural-looking, tooth-colored dental fillings in Leawood, Kansas, instead of silver amalgam fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are generally made of composite resign, and they preserve the natural beauty and look of your smile. To place a filling, Dr. Stephen Huber and his caring dental team will:
- Remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth
- Thoroughly clean the tooth
- Place the filling to restore shape and structure to the tooth
- Shape and mold the tooth to fit your natural bite
- Polish the tooth for a beautiful shine
Tooth-colored fillings are also superior to other types of fillings because the composite resign bonds to your natural tooth structure for increased strength and permanence. At our dental office, we strive to make every treatment as comfortable and pain-free as possible. If you feel you might need a tooth-colored filling, contact our supportive dental team at 913-543-3751 today to schedule an appointment. We will answer any questions you may have and get you started on the road to a more beautiful, healthy smile. We look forward to hearing from you.
