Dental fillings are used to fill cavities and repair cracked or broken teeth. Tooth Fillings in Tarzana can be done with gold, porcelain, or silver amalgam, but is most commonly done with materials called composite resin fillings that are designed to match the color of your teeth. Additional steps are required for tooth colored fillings because it requires multiple layers and a special light to dry and harden the area around the filling.
Our Tarzana white fillings expert will begin by using an anesthetic to numb the area around the affected tooth. Once your gums are numb, we will use special tools to remove the decay and prepare the tooth for the filling. We use tooth colored dental fillings, which are considered more aesthetically pleasing and contain no mercury, which has some health concerns for some patients. Tooth colored dental fillings are made with composite resin.
