Experiencing frequent tooth pain? You may be experiencing dental decay and suffering from a cavity. At Katy Dental Experts in Katy, TX, we offer tooth-colored composite restoration fillings for our patients that have a cavity and are interested in stopping the progression of decay. Unlike many other Katy dental practices, we use tooth-colored composite fillings instead of amalgam, which is a safer, healthier and more durable solution. Wondering if you may need dental fillings in Katy, TX? Here are some signs to look out for:
For decades, dentists have used amalgam fillings containing mercury, which is a toxic metal. We prefer to offer healthy, safe treatment options for our patients and therefore use tooth-colored composite. Not only is a composite restoration a healthier option—it also looks better as well!
During your composite tooth filling appointment, our dentist will remove any decay and bacteria in the affected tooth. Using tooth-colored composite, we will then fill the cavity, preventing further decay and damage as well as restoring the structural integrity of your tooth.
Think you may need a composite restoration? Contact us today to schedule your appointment. We’d be happy to evaluate your teeth and oral health to determine if tooth colored fillings may be the right option for you.
