Tooth-colored fillings in Mechanicsville, MD

Creating Tooth-Colored Fillings with Composite Resin

We use tooth-colored composite resins to create our fillings. Not only are composite fillings strong, but they are also stain-resistant. We match the resin to the color of your teeth, making them more aesthetically pleasing and natural looking. In fact, a composite filling is usually indistinguishable from your tooth.

Composite fillings are used to restore teeth treated for decay, to replace old, large and metal fillings, and to strengthen tooth structure. Your composite filling is layered onto your tooth, and then cured with a high-intensity light that hardens the resin. Once the resin is shaped to match the shape of your restored tooth, the entire tooth is polished.

With proper oral hygiene habits, your new composite resin, tooth-colored filling will last a long time. Best of all, it’s made of safe, durable materials!
