If you or your child have a cavity, Dr. Matt Pierce or Dr. Jim Heck may recommend tooth-colored dental fillings in Greenwood, Indiana. Our dentists will take out the tooth decay, clean the tooth thoroughly and fill the cavity with the filling material. Our dental office uses tooth-colored dental fillings, which are also called composite fillings. Composite fillings are attractive and can be matched to the shade of your natural teeth. This type of filling is well suited for the front teeth and other visible teeth. Tooth-colored dental fillings are chemically bonded to your tooth, so they are strong. They typically do not require removing as much tooth enamel as other types of filling. Composite fillings are versatile as they can also be used to repair chipped, cracked, broken or worn teeth.
Our dentists will first remove the decay from your tooth. The area is then cleaned of bacteria and debris. Then the composite filling is placed in layers. Our dentists will harden each layer with a curing light. When the layers are all in place, our dentists will shape the filling, trim off excess material and polish it.
