Dental fillings are made of a composite resin that is the same shade as your natural tooth. Dental fillings are designed to restore missing tooth structure and prevent bacteria from entering the pulp of the tooth.
Dental fillings are bonded to the tooth. Unlike silver (amalgam) fillings that were never bonded to the tooth, a composite dental filling is directly bonded to the tooth and provides an improved interface. At Bee Creek Dental, we replace aged dental fillings to create longevity in smiles.
Dental fillings have a life span and should be evaluated by a dental professional. Your mouth ages, your dental fillings age and it is important to understand that minimal preventive changes create a healthier and longer lasting smile.
