A composite dental filling will repair a tooth that has broken down or decayed. In just one appointment, Dr. Politmi Mantzouranis, DDS will remove the affected portion of the tooth and then clean and fill the remainder of the tooth. Using composite (tooth-colored) materials, your dental filling will be matched closely to the color of your existing teeth.
Tooth-colored fillings can be placed in one appointment. When preparing your tooth for the dental filling, Dr. Politmi Mantzouranis, DDS will remove all tooth decay, and thoroughly clean the remaining tooth. If the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, the doctor may apply a special medication for your protection. After the tooth is prepared, the composite filling will be precisely placed, shaped, and polished for optimal cosmetic and functional results.
After receiving your new tooth-colored filling, the dentist will give you advice and instructions for its care. It is normal to feel sensitivity to your filling immediately after the treatment is performed, but the doctor’s instructions will let you know how to manage any short-term sensitivity and how to maintain your newly restored dental health. Please call our office today to schedule your next dental appointment and receive a composite filling.
