Minimally Invasive Dental Fillings

A Great Alternative to Silver Fillings

Tooth colored fillings match the rest of your smile

The reason people need fillings is because of tooth decay.

Dr Borden tries to be extremely conservative with her treatments, and recommends placing white fillings when a cavity is present.

This hopefully prevents the need for more extensive treatment later, and is a wonderful alternative to larger, unsightly silver fillings.

Strengthen Your Smile

The materials used in white fillings allow them to bond onto the actual tooth, holding it together.

During your filling appointment, Dr. Borden will thoroughly numb the tooth to prevent any discomfort. She starts out very slowly, and will frequently check in on you throughout the procedure to ensure you are as comfortable as possible.

Sometimes we will also use a rubber dam, so that you do not have to worry about tasting or swallowing anything during the procedure.

Cosmetic Benefits

Not only are white fillings smaller, they also have the advantage of people not being able to see them. The material blends in with the teeth, giving it a cosmetic advantage over other types of restorations.

A Second Opinion

We can also replace your existing fillings with composite fillings if you like. Or, if you have been told that you need fillings and want a second opinion, call our office today. We’ll be happy to answer any questions that you have!
