Dentist Michael D. Doty, D.D.S. and his team are dedicated to helping you maintain a smile that is both healthy and beautiful. We are pleased to offer cosmetic (tooth-colored) dental fillings to aesthetically repair teeth that have suffered minor to moderate damage. We may recommend a filling if your tooth has been damaged by tooth decay (for example, if your tooth has a cavity), or if your tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function and to return your smile to good health. Because Dr. Doty offers dental fillings that are made of composite, tooth-colored materials, you won’t have to sacrifice the appearance of your smile.
The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Dr. Doty will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of your tooth, and then clean the tooth to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the tooth with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened for a lasting restoration.
If your tooth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling in Abingdon, Virginia, may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about cosmetic fillings and to schedule your next appointment with our team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
