Dental Fillings in Melbourne & Palm Bay, FL
When can a composite filling be used for?
- Decayed tooth (i.e. cavity)
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Decreasing the gap between teeth
How its done
Once the area is numb, isolated, and cleaned out, the tooth surface is etched to permit a durable bond of the filling material to the tooth and cured with a special light. Once this is complete, the filling is applied in thin layers to slowly form the complete filling. After the composite has hardened, the filling will be smoothened and polished to be comfortable and fit your bite.
