Composite Fillings Houston, TX
After you’ve had a cavity drilled, your dentist will need to fill the space with a filling. At Prestigious Smiles Dental in North Houston, we’re happy to offer composite fillings rather than the metal fillings of decades past. These fillings are made of a tooth-colored combination of resin and glass rather than metal amalgam and are better for your teeth overall.
Benefits of Composite Fillings
They look more natural than traditional metal fillings.
They don’t contain mercury or other potentially harmful materials.
They make teeth stronger.
They prevent tooth decay from returning to the area.
What to Expect
After receiving a filling, the area might feel strange for a few days as your mouth is not used to the new material. This is normal, and you should adjust to the feeling within the week.
