Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings
Damaged or decayed teeth may require a dental filling. When you visit Tara Hills Dental, Dr. Feriel El Ghaoui and our caring team will check your teeth for signs of decay. Should you require a filling, our dentist will treat your tooth with a composite, or tooth-colored, filling. Our dentist will also replace old and worn fillings to help your smile maintain the protection it needs. We invite you to contact us at 510-724-7474 to schedule your appointment for tooth-colored dental fillings in Pinole, California, and let us give your smile the care it needs.
A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if your tooth has been damaged by tooth decay (for example, if your tooth has a cavity), or if your tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function and to return your smile to good health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite fillings.
The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of your tooth, and then clean the tooth to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the tooth with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened for a lasting restoration.
If your tooth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and to schedule your next appointment with our team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
