Tooth-colored Fillings Offers Stunningly Beautiful Results

When a patient has a cavity, Dr. Belnap and Dr. Jergensen may recommend a tooth-colored filling in Rancho Peñasquitos and Ramona, CA. Our dentists will remove the tooth decay, clean the tooth thoroughly, and fill the area with the filling material. At our office, we provide aesthetic white fillings, which are called composite dental fillings. Our dentists will select a shade of filling material that will match the color of your natural teeth.

Our dentists will first use a drill, air abrasion instrument, or a laser to remove the tooth decay. The area is tested to ensure that all of the decay has been removed. Then our dentists will remove the bacteria and debris from the area. Composite dental fillings are applied in layers. Our dentists will use a curing light to harden each layer as it is applied. When all of the dental filling layers are in place, our dentists will shape the material to the desired result, trim off any excess filling material, and polish the final dental filling.

We welcome you to contact PQ Family Dental today to learn more about composite dental fillings and to schedule your next visit with our dentists. We are excited to serve you and your family!
