Composite Dental Fillings Are Effective For Repairing A Cavity In Your Smile

Here at Swati Agarwal, DDS‘s San Francisco, California dental offices, we understand just how much your smile’s appearance means to you. When one of your front teeth develops a cavity it can hamper your self-confidence​, while also causing discomfort. To repair the tooth decay and restore your smile’s appearance, our dentist, Dr. Niloufer Hamsayeh can apply a composite dental filling.

After taking some X-rays and examining the tooth, your dentist, Dr. Hamsayeh will numb the area. Then she will remove any decayed tooth enamel to prepare the surface for a filling.

A composite-resin filling is made from a special dental-grade plastic that can be perfectly shaded to match the surrounding tooth enamel. This makes a filling a good choice for repairing a chip that’s visible in your smile.

Once it has been applied and shaped to be flush with the surrounding tooth enamel, Dr. Hamsayeh will use a special ultraviolet light to cure the filling. This will harden the filling and ensure a strong bond with the remaining tooth enamel.

If you live in the San Francisco, California area and you’re concerned that a cavity has formed on one of your teeth, you should not delay in calling 415-362-5315 to have it treated and repaired at Dr. Swati Agarwal’s clinic.
