Virginia Beach dentist Dr. Cappy Sinclair places natural looking and durable tooth colored fillings at Coastal Cosmetic Dentistry. A dental filling can serve both restorative and cosmetic purposes, treating tooth decay, damage and minor imperfections. Dr. Sinclair uses quality materials for composite dental fillings that are color matched to your natural smile for an aesthetically pleasing result.
Dental Fillings: What To Expect
A dental filling is completed during a single visit to our VA Beach dentist office using a local anesthetic to numb the area and make you comfortable. In cases of tooth decay, the infection will be removed from the tooth and the area will be thoroughly cleaned. A custom colored composite resin will be placed in the affected area and smoothed to create a natural surface that will feel comfortable while protecting and strengthening your tooth.
Once the filling material is placed it will be cured using a special light and then polished for a smooth texture and natural luster. One of the key benefits of composite fillings is that they create a tight seal that prevents future decay and infection.
Do you have old, dark fillings that are impacting the appearance of your smile or breaking down and coming out? Dr. Sinclair can replace these fillings with new, white fillings for a quick smile makeover that will also improve your dental health.
