Dental fillings are a common type of dental restoration used to repair damage or decay to your tooth enamel. A fairly simple treatment, dental fillings in Sacramento, California, generally take only one visit to our office to apply. We welcome you to call us today at 916-649-0249 to learn more about the benefits of dental fillings and set up your appointment with Dr. HOang Truong.
In the past, a wide variety of materials were used for fillings, including metal and gold. At Gateway Oaks Dental, we are pleased to offer patients of all ages high-quality white fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings or composite fillings.
White fillings are made from a mixture of durable plastic alloys known as composite resin. There are many advantages to using white fillings when compared to other types of dental fillings. White fillings are exceptionally strong and last much longer, bonding with your tooth structure. Our team can also match the color of composite resin used to your natural enamel color for a more beautiful restoration.
To place a dental filling, we will remove all signs of decay, clean the tooth, and apply the composite resin directly to the tooth’s surface. Our dentist will then sculpt the filling until it fits perfectly with the grooves and curves of your tooth. Once completed, the filling is hardened with a light and polished to a natural shine.
