If you have tooth decay, Dr. Jun H Chung may recommend a dental filling in Leesburg, Virginia, to restore the health of your tooth. After removing the damaged section of tooth, our dentist will fill the area with the dental filling material. At Lansdowne Dental Arts, we utilize composite dental fillings, which blend in with your smile.
Advantages of Composite Dental Fillings
Composite dental fillings, which are also called white fillings or tooth-colored fillings, have many advantages to you and your smile. The shade of the filling material can be matched to that of your natural teeth. Because of this, they are very aesthetic. Composite fillings are a good choice for the front teeth. Composite fillings bond to the structure of your tooth, which provides greater support for the filling. In addition to being used to treat tooth decay, composite fillings can be used to repair broken, chipped, or worn-down teeth.
Composite Dental Filling Placement
Our dentist will numb the area before placing your composite dental filling. The decayed portion of the tooth is removed and the area is tested to make sure that all damaged material has been taken out. The area is then cleaned of bacteria and debris. Your composite filling is then placed in layers. The layers are cured and hardened with a curing light as they are placed. Once all of the layers are in place, our dentist will shape, trim, and polish the restoration.
