If a tooth is damaged by decay, we may recommend a tooth-colored filling to repair the tooth. Tooth-colored fillings are created using composite resin, which is a durable material that will provide a long-lasting restoration for your smile. Our skilled dentist in Alpharetta, Georgia, Dr. Kitchens, will match the color of the composite resin to your natural tooth color for an aesthetic effect. Tooth-colored fillings are typically placed in just one short, painless visit to our dental office. Dr. Kitchens first removes the decayed portion of the tooth, then cleans the tooth and fills it in with composite resin. To learn more about the advantages of tooth-colored dental fillings, we invite you to contact us at Windward Dental Care today!
