If your tooth has sustained minor damage from cracks or cavities, our dentist may recommend repairing it with a filling. Our office uses only tooth-colored, or composite, filling material to ensure that your results look natural and blend in with your other teeth. For more information about tooth-colored dental fillings in Louisville, Kentucky, and to make an appointment with Dr. David Willey, call us today at 502-893-5454.
A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if a tooth has been damaged by decay (for example, if it has a cavity) or suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function, and return your smile to good health.
The process for placing a dental filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth, then clean it to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the area with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened by our dentist for a lasting restoration.
If one of your teeth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and schedule your next appointment with our dentist and team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
