If a tooth is damaged by mild to moderate decay or injury, we may recommend a dental filling. Dental fillings are used to repair damaged teeth and restore the health and function of your smile. We offer white fillings at Stillwater Family Dental to provide you with an aesthetic, durable restoration. White dental fillings are made using composite resin, which is a tooth-colored material. Our skilled dentists will match the shade of the composite resin to the color of your natural teeth to provide you with a natural-looking dental restoration. In fact, no one will even be able to tell that you have a filling! Composite resin also strengthens the tooth by bonding to its structure, helping to prevent further tooth decay in the future.
To place the dental filling, Dr. Perpich and Dr. Carlson will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth. After thoroughly cleaning the tooth, they will fill it with composite resin. They will then shape the filling to fit your bite and polish it to comfortably, aesthetically blend in with your smile. Your white filling in Stillwater, Minnesota can be finished in only one visit to our office. Call us soon for more information and to schedule your next visit to our dental office!
