Composite Fillings

DENTIST IN ARLINGTON, VA

Harmful bacteria on the tooth can lead to decay. Our dentist can remove the decay and fill the area. Tooth colored fillings are made of tooth colored, composite resin. The resin is chosen to match your teeth and offers an aesthetically pleasing solution for a decayed tooth. This protects the tooth from infection and further decay.

When decay is left untreated, it can worsen, causing further infection and more severe pain. The infected tooth may eventually require a root canal or extraction.

You can decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases by:

  • Brushing your teeth at least twice a day
  • Flossing daily
  • Keeping up with regular professional cleaning
  • Avoid eating or drinking acidic or sugary foods and beverages
