There are many dental fillings in the dental world today, but our team at Turlock Dental Care is proud to use composite fillings for your benefit!

A composite filling in Turlock, California, offers natural-looking results and also has the ability to not only restore a tooth’s health after it has been damaged by decay, but it can also fix many other dental problems, like cracked, fractured, or broken teeth. This type of filling also provides further support for the tooth by chemically bonding to its structure. In comparison to other dental fillings, composite fillings also preserve more of the tooth’s structure when it is being placed. This is a great option that not only restores the health of your tooth, but it also provides an aesthetically pleasing result.

The process of placing a dental filling is simple and painless. It will first involve Dr. Robert A. McCulla numbing your tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. When your mouth is numb, he will remove the decay, deeply clean the tooth, and fill it with the composite filling, layer by layer. When the tooth is completely full, your dentist will trim and shape the top of the filling to make it fit perfectly with your bite.
