Our Services Tooth Colored Fillings

Dental Filling Procedure

Today, dentistry is capable of providing you with new alternatives in dental fillings that achieve functional, natural-looking results. Ocean Springs Dental offers a variety of types of restorations, including these natural, tooth colored fillings.

Dr. Hendrix and his staff can help you choose the alternative best suited for your needs

Procedure

After the tooth is profoundly numbed, the decayed area of your tooth will be gently removed and then replaced with filling material. Dr. Hendrix always takes care to remove the minimal amount of tooth structure possible, conservatively removing all of the decay while leaving all possible healthy tooth structure. After the filling is placed a bright ultraviolet light is used to cure it. The filling will then be polished and checked for proper occlusion (fit between the upper and lower teeth).
