A Composite Resin Filling Can Repair a Cavity Visible in your Smile

Posted .

Minute textures in tooth enamel can create areas that trap bacterial deposits, which promotes tooth decay and other oral health complications. This serious problem can be compounded, if the cavity is visible in your smile, and alters your appearance. In a situation like this, you should not delay in seeking treatment at Dr. Nicole Furuta’s Denver, Colorado clinic.

If the cavity is small and on a non-essential area of the tooth, Dr. Nicole Furuta might be able to repair the tooth with a composite-resin filling. This is a special dental-grade plastic material that can be shaded to match the surrounding tooth enamel.

After a thorough examination, and numbing Dr. Nicole Furuta will use a drill to remove any signs of decayed tooth enamel. Then she can shade the composite-resin and apply it directly to the tooth. With some minor shaping and adjustments, the filling material will blend perfectly with the rest of the tooth enamel.

Once the composite filling has been cured with a special ultraviolet light, it will repair the tooth for many years ahead.

If you live in the Denver, Colorado area and you have a cavity on a tooth in your smile, you should not delay in calling 303-623-5636 to have it examined and repaired by Dr. Nicole Furuta.
