Tooth-colored fillings fill the hole (cavity) left by tooth decay using a natural-looking composite resin. Gone are the days when having a cavity meant leaving the dentist’s with a silver spot on your tooth — composite resin is natural looking and completely metal-free, which protects your and your family’s smiles.
For their aesthetic and restorative advantages, tooth-colored fillings are the preferred option for repairing smiles after tooth decay. Dr. Alex Ness and Dr. Stephanie Ness are pleased to offer this option for Minot families and friends.
In addition to restoring new areas of decay or replacing old gray dental work, the same material used for tooth-colored fillings can also make minor cosmetic repairs to the teeth that show when you smile. Your dentist applies the composite resin to the surface of the chipped, broken, stained, or misshapen tooth, then carefully sculpts a new form. Direct bonding is an affordable, fast, non-invasive solution for repairing minor cosmetic flaws on the teeth that show when you smile.
