What it is
When teeth become decayed, they are more prone to break down and can deteriorate. It is best to remove all of the decay and protect the tooth by getting a filling placed. Here at Beachton we offer tooth-colored fillings, which are made from a composite resin material which is a safe biocompatible material that blends into the natural tooth structure and can match the natural tooth’s color.
For most filling patients we will have to numb the tooth. Once the decay is removed and the filling material is placed, our doctor light cures the filling making it a hardened surface that provides a seal to protect the tooth from further breaking down. If you have any questions about our dental fillings or need to schedule an appointment please give us a call at (229) 377-6588.
