Our Ridge Smile Dental Clinic dental professionals provide dental fillings to help stop decay and assist you and family members with cavities.

Filling Process

Our dentists use composite fillings which consist of plastic and glass particles. These fillings have become popular because they can match your existing tooth color and they also solidly bond or glue to the tooth.

After the decay in your tooth has been cleaned, a cleansing gel is applied. Next a bonding solution is applied, followed by the composite filling material. We harden the filling by applying a high intensity blue light. It only takes a few seconds for the materials to harden.

We check the filling to ensure the proper shape and look. At this point any necessary adjustments are made and then your filling is complete.

Why Do I Need A Filling?

A filling treats cavities, which is decay.

If left untreated, your cavity could grow and enter into the nerve canal. This will lead to further complications.

Fillings may also be needed to replace or repair an old filling or to fix a chipped tooth.
