A composite filling (also called a white filling or tooth-colored filling) is a restoration used to repair a tooth that is damaged by minor decay or fractures. Composite fillings are a wonderful choice for restoring your smile because they are designed to blend in with the natural color of your teeth. Composite fillings are created from composite resin, which our talented dentist will match to your natural tooth shade. This provides you with an aesthetic restoration that maintains the natural, beautiful appearance of your smile! Composite resin is also an excellent option for restoring damaged teeth because the material bonds to your natural tooth structure, strengthening the tooth and helping to prevent additional decay in the future.
Dr. Laura B. Ousley may suggest a composite filling in Guthrie and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to repair a tooth that is decayed, worn, cracked, or chipped. Composite resin is also used to fill in gaps between teeth. Your composite filling can be completed in just one pleasant visit to our relaxing dental office. If a tooth is decayed, we will gently remove the decayed portion, then fill the tooth with composite resin. Before hardening the filling, Dr. Laura B. Ousley will carefully shape the filling to ensure that it fits your smile comfortably.
