Come in for a Great-Looking Tooth Filling

Like most people, you probably don’t think much about dental fillings. However, when you need one, it’s a good idea to have the number for a skilled and experienced dental team handy. In our area, that’s Smiles & Dental Care. Dr. Zia  will restore your smile and bite.

One thing you’ll appreciate about our practice is that we use metal-free tooth fillings. Our composite resin fillings are made of tiny bits of glass and plastic that are shaded to match the rest of your teeth. Dr. Zia will remove the decay, sculpt the composite into place, and cure it with an ultraviolet light to instantly harden the filling. She’ll make any final adjustments needed to ensure it looks great and doesn’t interfere with your bite.

If you have more extensive dental damage, you may require a different restoration:

  • An Inlay or Onlay – An inlay is a custom restoration, usually made from porcelain, that sits on top of the tooth between the cusps (tips). An onlay is similar, except it also covers the sides of your tooth.
  • A Dental Crown – A crown is a good choice for more serious decay, as it covers your entire tooth.
