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 can restores a tooth’s health after it has been damaged by decay. Composite fillings 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 they are being placed. This is a great option that not only restores the health of your tooth while 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 or Dr. Zachary McComb numbing your tooth and the surrounding area with a local anesthetic. When your mouth is numb, they will remove the decay, deeply clean the tooth and fill it with the composite filling, layer by layer. When the tooth is completely full, our dentists will trim and shape the top of the filling to make it fit perfectly with your bite.
