Direct Teeth Fillings
Dental fillings are the number one procedure in dentistry. It is hard to find an adult that does not have a filling.
For a small or medium sized cavity, we recommend the use of direct filling. A tooth colored composite material is applied directly to the tooth and hardened using a special light. Direct fillings can typically be completed during a single appointment. It is important to note that composite material is a plastic formulation, which can eventually discolor or lose elasticity. With time, cavities can reoccur around existing fillings or restorations.
