A naturally beautiful tooth restoration

If your teeth have minor to moderate tooth damage from cavities, fracturing or chipping, Dr. Keven R. Mills can provide you with a dental filling to repair the damage and restore your tooth to full function and strength.

There are two main types of dental fillings that may be used when you receive this treatment, silver amalgam fillings and composite (tooth-colored) fillings. At the office of Keven R. Mills, DDS, we offer only composite dental fillings to repair your damaged teeth.

Dental fillings work by literally “filling in” the holes and cracks in your tooth, matching the contours of the damaged tooth to restore its strength and function. Composite fillings also restore the appearance of the tooth, blending in with your teeth to create a natural-looking appearance. We have chosen to use composite fillings in order to provide you with a restoration which is healthier as well as more aesthetically pleasing. Amalgam fillings often cause problems for your oral health in the long run, including further tooth damage and leakage of the filling material into your mouth. Composite fillings bond tightly with your tooth structure in order to promote better long-term oral health as well as give you a naturally beautiful result.

Our dentist can place your dental filing in a single appointment. First, we will remove the decayed and damaged portions of the tooth and clean it thoroughly to remove all traces of decay. The filling material is then placed into the damaged area and shaped to match the tooth. Our dentist then hardens and polishes it to complete your treatment. This entire process typically takes about an hour.
