Fast, Effective Cavity Repair
Bonded tooth-colored restorations, also known as composite restorations, have stood the test of time, and they are still the best option for filling small cavities!
For years dentists placed amalgam or silver fillings composed primarily of a 50/50 blend of silver and mercury. First, the dentist would remove the decay, then the dentist would deepen, widen, and undercut the opening into the tooth just so that the silver filling would not fall out of the tooth. Bonded, tooth-colored restorations or composite fillings can bond to the tooth – even to a flat surface – so the dentist can place a very conservative restoration, removing just the decayed and weakened tooth and preserving more of your healthy tooth structure.
I don’t live in GJ but had an emergency today with a filling that was broken out of my FRONT tooth!!! Embarrassing to say the least!! Dr. Gillis’s and Her staff provided my care so efficiently and beautifully! I have NEVER had such a thorough exam!!! The atmosphere was absolutely beautiful!! I LOVED my experience and honestly didn’t want to leave!!!! Great Job!! Thank you!

Composite resin fillings are precisely shaded to match the smile’s natural appearance, blending seamlessly. The material is not sensitive to changes in temperature, and it is directly applied to the prepared tooth without any bonding material between the natural structure and restoration. Tooth-colored fillings are applied directly to the tooth, shaped, and hardened into position, all in just one visit.
