Dental Fillings in Midlothian, Texas
Most people will develop a cavity at some time in their lifetime. Modern dentistry offers many options that blend long-lasting strength and attractiveness. Dr. Buie will first remove the decay and then fill the tooth using a tooth-colored composite resin. Resin fillings are durable long-term for most fillings and are virtually undetectable when you smile. Because they can be matched to your natural shade, they can also be used for filling cavities in areas on front teeth and near the gum line.
When a tooth is cracked, disfigured or decayed, a composite (white) filling may be used to restore the tooth to prevent more extensive breakage needing a crown. Composite fillings are tooth-colored and can be closely matched to the existing tooth color, especially important in more visible areas of the mouth. These fillings are very durable and should last many years. Good oral hygiene and regular visits to Buie Clinic will help fillings last longer and help you enjoy a pain-free, healthy mouth.
