If your child has one or more cavities, our friendly dentists at Safari Dental may recommend a composite dental filling. These tooth-colored fillings are an excellent choice for repairing teeth and restoring their strength and appearance. We welcome you to contact our dental office in Bryan, TX today for more information about composite fillings and our other pediatric services.
A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if your tooth has been damaged by tooth decay (for example, if your tooth has a cavity) or if your tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function and to return your smile to good health.
The process of placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of your tooth and then clean it to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the tooth with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened for a lasting restoration.
If your tooth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and to schedule your next appointment with our team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
