Tooth Colour Filling
When a tooth’s structure has been compromised by decay, a crack in the enamel, or a chip, a filling is required to prevent further damage. Often, these areas have gone undetected by the patient until the dentist finds them in a routine check up.
The tooth-colored mercury-free filling materials we use provide you with functional, natural-looking results.
Typically, local anesthesia is used. Dr Gorospe will remove the decayed or damaged area of your tooth and replaced with filling material. Care is taken to remove as little of the tooth structure as possible while providing a good bond for the filling material. The tooth will then be polished and checked for proper occlusion (fit between the upper and lower teeth).
