The most common restorative procedure completed in a dental office is a filling. Fillings are performed to remove a decayed portion of your tooth, but they can also be used to repair damaged, chipped, broken, or worn teeth. Dr. Petroff uses the safest, most modern dental technologies available when placing fillings.
We use color-matched composite resins, or white fillings, to repair cavities. Composite fillings minimize the amount of tooth structured removed, resulting in smaller fillings with a natural feeling and look in the mouth. The composite material bonds to tooth structure, providing additional strength. The shade or color of the composite fillings are closely matched to the color of existing teeth, so no one will ever know you have a filling.
