Damage to your tooth enamel from decay is one of the most common conditions we treat at Dr. Jeffrey A. Carson’s dental office. Our treatment of choice for such conditions is often a dental filling. Food particles and bacteria can cause decaying acids that eat away at your tooth structure, causing cavities. Dental fillings are designed to fill in the empty spaces left once cavities have been removed. In the past, dental fillings were made from a variety of materials, including metal and gold. Today, thanks to advances in modern dental technology, we are proud to offer white dental fillings in Cleveland, Tennessee.
White fillings are made from a durable type of plastic known as composite resin. Composite resin is soft and moldable when first applied to your tooth, allowing Dr. Jeffrey A. Carson, our talented dentist, to shape and sculpt the filling to perfection. Once hardened, white fillings bond with your natural tooth structure for a secure and lasting restoration. We can also match the color of the composite restoration to your natural teeth in order to maintain and enhance the beauty of your smile. Generally, it only takes one visit to our dental office to place white fillings. For more information about white fillings and to schedule a tour of our office, please call our friendly dental team today. We look forward to restoring your smile!
