Fillings Bloomington MN Do you suspect that you have a cavity in your tooth? Do you dislike the ideal of an unsightly and potentially painful filling? Have no fear: Normandale Dental offers the alternative option of tooth-colored fillings to Bloomington, MN. Also known as composite fillings, tooth-colored fillings have almost entirely replaced the silver amalgam material that had been used by dentists everywhere for time immemorial. The primary purpose of a filling is to repair a cavity, i.e., a hole in the tooth that has resulted from excessive exposure to bacteria, restoring the tooth’s full health and function. Modern dentistry’s creation of tooth-colored fillings has opened the doors to utilizing fillings to repair severely cracked teeth as well support roots that had been exposed due to gum recession. The revolutionary composite material allows for a seamless restoration not only of the affected tooth’s function but also its aesthetic appeal. These fillings can now be used in visible areas of your mouth without impairing your ability to smile. Fillings Procedure The procedure for tooth-colored filling placement requires a single, short visit to our office. The first step is to remove the decayed portion of the tooth to ensure that the problem does not return. The next step is to place the composite material into the empty space, followed by shaping and polishing the tooth in order to fully restore its natural appearance. Upon completion, these fillings have been proven to withstand the test of time, offering invaluable support for your tooth’s structure. In addition, the highly durable composite material ensures that your tooth remains unaffected by the regular pressure of chewing: This is particularly beneficial in the case of your back molars. Benefits of Fillings These and many other benefits make tooth-colored fillings the ideal option for repairing minor to moderate cavities or imperfections.
