Dental Fillings

Nashua, NH Dentist

For small to moderate-sized cavities, we place tooth-colored composite fillings. These fillings contain no metal or amalgam, so they are safe for all clients. A filling requires a single visit. The doctor cleans the tooth of all decay and infection, then custom-tints composite material to match the tooth’s enamel. After placing the composite in the cavity and shaping it for ideal fit and appearance, we then harden the filling with a special curing light. With proper care and good oral health, a composite filling can last five to seven years, or longer.
