If you have minor tooth damage such as chipped teeth, cracked or broken teeth, decayed teeth, or worn teeth, Palisades Dental recommends composite fillings (also known as white fillings). Composite fillings are aesthetically appealing compared to silver fillings as they match the natural teeth color and are almost invisible to differentiate.

During your visit, the damaged portion of your tooth will be removed and the tooth will be cleaned thoroughly. It will then be filled with composite resin material that bonds to the tooth to ensure a tight seal. Composite fillings can help restore not only the functionality of your teeth but also the beauty of your smile. Call Palisades Dental and discuss the best option for restoring you teeth with our dentist.
