Dental Fillings

Dental fillings repair and restore the surface of a tooth that has been damaged by decay, fracture, or wear.  Dental fillings strengthen the teeth. If tooth decay is not repaired at its early stages, it will worsen and additional or alternative dental treatments may be necessary. Call your Purcellville Dentist at Purcellville Gateway today at 540-338-3330 to discuss your options.

With proper care and routine oral hygiene, a dental filling has a lifespan of 5-12 years, depending upon the type of filling material used.

Composite Bonding Dental Fillings

Dental FillingsThe most common dental filling is composite bonding as a filling material following caries removal. It is molded and sculpted over a bonding agent that is placed on the tooth. After the composite has been applied, an ultraviolet light is used to harden the composite, which is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile.

Composite bonding is a type of dental filling and obvious aesthetic improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental concerns. It is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures done today.
