If you experience pain when chewing or biting, or sensitivity to heat or cold, you may have a cavity. Dental decay knows no age limits and affects children and adults alike. At Dentistry on the Heights, Dr. Williams applies tooth-colored fillings to make teeth look and feel like new.
Tooth-colored fillings created from composite resin provide a strong, durable, and attractive solution to restore a tooth damaged by a cavity. After removing the decayed portion of a tooth, the dentist will choose a small amount of composite resin to match your natural tooth color, then permanently bond it in place. Tooth-colored composite resin forms a strong, lasting bond. In addition, composite resin resists decay. Your newly restored tooth will look fantastic for the long-term, function comfortably, and provide lasting comfort.
If your tooth requires more protection than a filling provides, the dentist may suggest a custom-made crown.
