Tooth Colored Fillings – Garland, TX

Quick. Easy. Painless.

Patient receiving dental treatment

Dental fillings are used to restore the appearance and function of teeth that have experienced minor damage or decay, often caused by cavities. When a tooth develops a cavity, it creates a void in the tooth that can be used by bacteria and food particles to access the inner portions of the tooth. If this happens, an infection can occur, causing further damage. It is very important that this void is sealed with a dental filling as quickly as possible in order to prevent this from happening. Cavities are a very common occurrence, and most people will require at least one dental filling at some point during their lives.

At Orbit Dental of Garland, we are proud to offer tooth-colored fillings, which are also known as composite fillings. This type of dental filling is comprised of a combination of quartz and glass fillers that are housed inside of a resin medium. Tooth-colored fillings are incredibly durable, providing an end result that is stronger than that of a traditional metal filling. Unlike metal fillings, composite fillings are not prone to leaking, and they have the appearance of healthy, natural teeth. Best of all, tooth-colored fillings are built to last, as they are able to withstand the pressure associated with chewing hard foods on a daily basis. A patient who has received a tooth-colored filling will be able to immediately resume their normal eating, brushing and flossing habits.

If you believe that you are suffering from a cavity or minor tooth decay that requires a dental filling, please call us at (469) 277-2627 to schedule an appointment.
