When plaque bacteria process sugars, it produces acids that eat away at tooth enamel. Eventually, the enamel will develop areas of decay that are harmful to oral health. Our skilled dentist can treat these cavities and prevent them from growing larger when he places a composite dental filling. Not only do these fillings blend in with your teeth, but they are also healthier for them than traditional amalgam fillings. Call Dr. Kiley A. Smith today if you want to learn more about our composite dental fillings in Temple, Texas.
Composite fillings are tooth-colored restorations that we may place to restore teeth with minor cracks, decay, and fractures. Tooth-colored fillings are matched to the color of your natural teeth for the most aesthetically pleasing results possible. Dr. Kiley A. Smith can place a composite filling in just one visit at our office, where he will:
- Remove the damaged part of the tooth
- Clean the healthy tooth
- Place the tooth-colored filling
- Shape and polish the composite filling
Once complete, your composite filling will be a natural addition to your smile. If you are interested in learning more about tooth-colored fillings or the benefits of general and family dentistry, we invite you to call our office today.
