Fillings are dental restorations used to treat low to moderate tooth decay or damage. It is especially targeted at restoring the enamel of your teeth. At Oceanview Dental, our fillings are made of composite material due to its superior tooth-colored aesthetic. Our talented dental team is able to perfectly match the color of the filling to your natural teeth for a beautiful, lasting smile. White fillings in Oceanside, California also bond with your tooth for more strength and stability. After a thorough evaluation, Drs. Hargas and Linn may suggest composite fillings as part of your treatment to repair:
- Decayed or damaged teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Very worn teeth
Placing a composite filling typically requires only one visit to our dental office. While your tooth is numb, we will remove all decay and damage. The hollow spaces left will then be cleaned and prepared to receive the filling. Because the composite filling is soft and malleable when it is placed, it can be placed, shaped, and polished for an exact fit. It is then hardened by a special light.
