Fillings are an effective and efficient way to restore a tooth that has been damaged by decay, cracks, or fractures. After the affected area has been numbed, the damaged portion is removed and the tooth is restored with a composite material. Dr. Jun H Chung and our team have years of experience with this procedure, and we do everything we can to make this a quick and painless process. We offer many options for fillings at Lansdowne Dental Arts, so patients should meet with our skilled dentist to figure out which will be the best option for them.
Composite fillings can repair any of the following:
• Chipped teeth
• Cracked or broken teeth
• Decayed teeth
• Worn teeth
• Large spaces between two teeth
While there are many materials we can use for fillings, Lansdowne Dental Arts prefers to use a tooth-colored deposit. Dr. Jun H Chung prefers this material because it can closely match the color of a patient’s teeth while still maintaining the strength of the tooth. Despite their strength, composite fillings can wear down and may need to be replaced. However, after a composite filling is placed, a patient should be able to enjoy his or her smile for years without repair.
