What’s the one thing everyone asks when you get back from the dentist? They want to know if you had any cavities. The most common reason to get a dental filling is to repair tooth decay caused by a cavity. Dr. Elrod has helped thousands of patients throughout Lake Jackson and beyond restore their teeth with beautiful composite dental fillings.

At Distinctive Dental Services, we use composite fillings (also called tooth-colored or white fillings) because they are more aesthetically pleasing and more beneficial to your overall health. Our fillings use a dual bonding method that requires less removal of the natural tooth structure and creates a stronger bond for a lasting restoration.

We can use composite fillings to repair cavities or minor fractures or chipping in just a single office visit. Our state-of-the-art technology makes your filling comfortable and long-lasting so you can quickly restore your oral health.
