At Ranson Family Dental, we are pleased to offer composite dental fillings to our patients. Fillings are often used to repair teeth that have started to decay. Tooth-colored fillings can restore and protect your tooth’s health as well as the aesthetic appearance of your smile. Our dentists can also replace old amalgam fillings with new composite ones. To learn more about tooth-colored fillings in Morton Illinois, and to schedule your appointment with Dr. Ronald Ranson and Dr. Leticia Fernandez-Ranson, we invite you to call us today at 309-866-3026.
A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if a tooth has been damaged by decay (for example, if it has a cavity) or suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function, and return your smile to good health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite fillings.
The process for placing a dental filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth, then clean it to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the area with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened by our dentist for a lasting restoration.
If one of your teeth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and schedule your next appointment with our dentist and team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
