Used to prevent the spread of tooth decay or correct any cosmetic damage, a filling is just one of the ways Dr. Wallace can preserve your health. Before placement, any decay must be removed with a dental bur. We offer local anesthesia to ensure maximum comfort for our patients. Dr. Wallace offers white composite resin fillings to closely match the shade and color of your natural teeth.
Composite resin is ideal for repairing chipped or cracked teeth, filling in a tooth gap, correcting dental discoloration, protecting any exposed tooth root from gum recession, or changing the shape of teeth. Patients may also choose composite resin for cavity fillings as they are bonded to the teeth in layers and therefore require less drilling away of the natural tooth.
