HOW IT WORKS

Tooth filling procedure

We advise using a white tooth filling when you have a cavity that needs to be filled to ensure that the repair is nearly invisible to everyone. Small and moderate areas of decay can be repaired using resins for long-lasting, realistic-looking results that can make you feel better about your smile.

We create a solid bond wherein the composite resin "flows" onto the tooth surface. It's carefully molded for a natural fit and hardened with a specialized light.
