Dental fillings are a type of restoration used to repair more minor damage or decay. If the damage is not extensive enough to require the use of a dental crown, our experienced dentist may recommend a dental filling. We offer white fillings in Duluth, Georgia to aesthetically restore your smile. White dental fillings, which are also referred to as composite fillings or tooth-colored fillings, are created using composite resin. Because composite resin is available in a wide variety of shades, Dr. Bhoompalli will match the color of the filling to your natural tooth color to provide you with a restoration that blends in beautifully with your smile. When in place, a dental filling can effectively restore the health and function of your smile.
Do I need a dental filling?
If your tooth has a cavity or is damaged by tooth decay, you may need a dental filling. To place the filling, Dr. Bhoompalli will first gently remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth. She will then fill in the tooth with composite resin. Finally, she will shape and polish the filling to fit your bite.
