If your tooth is affected by a cavity, our caring dentists may recommend a composite dental filling. Composite fillings are made of a tooth-colored, durable material called composite resin. We can match the shade of the resin to your natural tooth color, providing you with an aesthetic, natural-looking restoration. The composite resin also bonds with your original tooth structure to strengthen the tooth and protect it from further damage and decay in the future. Composite dental fillings are more aesthetic than amalgam (silver) fillings, which were popular in the past. We are committed to using the latest materials and techniques at Washington Square Dental to continually provide you with the best possible dental care.
In order to place the filling and restore the tooth, Dr. Rashidi will first remove the decay from the tooth. After cleaning the tooth, they place the composite resin onto the tooth and sculpt it to fit the natural shape of your tooth. The dental filling is then hardened with a special light. Once completed, a composite dental filling in Tigard, OR can provide your smile with enhanced strength and health. To learn more about the advantages of composite fillings, please contact us today. We look forward to caring for you and your family!
