Tooth Colour Fillings (White Aesthetic fillings)

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 if a tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping.Our dentists in Richmond restore the tooth to its original structure and function and to return your smile to good health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings (silver fillings) and composite resin fillings (white aesthetic fillings).

The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our Richmond dental 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 for a lasting restoration. The whole process will be pain-free. 

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 our dental practice today to learn more about dental fillings and to schedule your next appointment with our dentists in Richmond. We look forward to caring for your smile!
