If your child has dental decay, Dr. Moumen Almouzayn may recommend a dental filling in Madison, Connecticut. The damaged portion of the tooth is removed and the dental filling material is used to fill the area and restore the structure of the tooth. At Madison Dental Spa, we utilize tooth-colored dental fillings.
There are many advantages of tooth-colored fillings, which are also called composite fillings. Composite fillings are very aesthetic because they can be closely matched to the shade of your existing teeth. Tooth-colored fillings chemically bond to your child’s tooth structure, which provides further support. In some cases, the use of composite dental filling material means that less tooth structure needs to be removed when preparing for the filling.
Our dentist will numb the area around the decayed tooth before removing the damaged tooth structure. The area will be thoroughly cleaned of bacteria and debris. The tooth-colored filling is then placed in layers. A special light is used to cure, or harden, each layer as it is applied. When all of the layers are in place, Dr. Moumen Almouzayn will shape the composite material, trim off any excess, and polish the final restoration.
