Home ยป Composite Dental Fillings That Provide a Discreet Solution for Cavities

If you experience discomfort or discoloration in a tooth, it could be a sign of decay. Our team at Royal Dental Practice, led by Dr. Roya Shoffet, serves patients in Hidden Hills and will diagnose the issue and recommend a filling to prevent further decay. We also offer fillings for chipped or cracked teeth. Fast and effective treatment is crucial to prevent the spread of decay. Our white composite resin filling is a strong, effective, and discreet solution to restore your tooth’s health.

Getting A Filling

The process can seem daunting if you have never had to get a filling before. However, we would like to assure you that there is nothing to worry about. Getting a filling is not only a quick process but also virtually painless. When you visit Dr. Shoffet for a routine checkup, it may be possible to see existing dental decay or cavities that require filling visually. If not, a radiograph can be used to detect cavities that exist between your teeth and are not visible to the naked eye. Early detection is vital to ensure we can preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible.

When a filling is necessary, the process will begin with Dr. Shoffet numbing the area so that you will not feel any pain for the duration of your treatment. Once this is complete and you are completely numb, she will prep your tooth by thoroughly cleaning the area to eliminate any existing bacteria. Any existing decay will be removed, and once your tooth is ready, Dr. Shoffet will apply the composite resin material to fill in the cavity. This type of filling is highly customizable so that we can match the shade of your natural tooth, making this a very discreet restoration. Once your filling is in place, Dr. Shoffet will polish your tooth for a beautiful shine.
