At Herndon Smile Design, our team can repair minor to moderate tooth damage through the use of a dental filling. If the tooth has been damaged by decay or if the tooth has experienced minor chipping, a dental filling can be used to restore the tooth’s structure and function. There are two types of fillings that are commonly used in the dental field: amalgam fillings and composite fillings. In our commitment to the safest dentistry practices, Dr. Rafaat only uses composite fillings, which do not contain metals or mercury. The composite filling is also-tooth colored, so your restoration will match your natural smile’s aesthetic.
Dr. Rafaat can typically restore the tooth with a dental filling in only one visit to the office. The procedure is quick, effective and very comfortable. We remove the damage and decayed portion of the tooth, cleaning it to remove decay. The dentist fills the tooth area with dental filling material, shaping the material to match your tooth’s natural shape. After performing these steps, we harden the filling, so you can have a long-lasting restoration that looks and feels great.
