Fillings are used to repair minimal tooth fractures, tooth decay, or damaged surfaces of teeth. Fillings can be used to even out tooth surfaces for better biting or chewing. Individuals with enamel loss resulting in tooth sensitivity will notice a significant improvement or complete elimination of sensitivity once the appropriate dental filling material is placed.
At Sixth Street Dental, we use white composite fillings. White composite fillings provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.
