White Fillings in Danbury
Enjoy a Brighter, Healthier & More Confident Smile
A dental filling is a restorative procedure that repairs teeth damaged by decay. In some cases enamel loss can cause a tooth to become sensitive and dental filling material is needed to relieve the tooth.
Tooth decay and cavities are quickly found during a routine dental appointment. Once detected, Dr. Marks will remove the decayed material, clean the affected area, then fill the cavity with a porcelain, or a composite resin. These filling materials close off access to bacteria and prevent further decay. They adhere to the natural teeth, and tend to strengthen and hold the teeth together.
On occasions when a filling is insufficient to repair tooth decay, a dental crown, implant, bridge, or root canal may be required. With regular check-ups Dr. Brenne can detect any problems early and prevent a more costly procedure.
