Repair and protect your teeth

There is a very common question that everyone asks when you get back from the dentist: Did you have any cavities?

Cavity fillings are, by far, one of the most common treatments a dental office will provide. They are so common, in fact, that most people will have had at least one in their lives.

The principle of cavity filling is quite simple: clean out any decay and patch up the resulting space so that the tooth is made complete and healthy again. This is a time-tested and extremely effective treatment.

The equipment and materials we use to accomplish these fillings has improved by leaps and bounds over the years, especially since the widespread adoption of digital technology.
One such improvement is the composite filling.

What is a Composite Filling?

Here at Distinctive Dental Services, we certainly use these composite fillings (also called tooth-colored or white fillings) because they are more aesthetically pleasing. This, however, is not the only reason. Composite materials are more beneficial to your overall health, when compared with old silver amalgam fillings.

Not only does this composite material bond to your tooth more securely, but it has the added advantage of containing no lead, and being extremely durable. No temperature sensitivity. No gradual pulling away from the tooth, over the years. Just solid, quality dental work that will last for years to come.

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, minor fractures, or chipping, all 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.
