Nobody wants a mouth full of silver fillings, which is why we offer composite (tooth-colored) fillings at Douglas Hauck DDS, Inc.. These tooth-colored restorations can be used to repair teeth with cracks, fractures, decay, and more. Your tooth-colored filling will be closely matched in size, shape, and color to your existing teeth for the most natural and aesthetically pleasing results possible.

Dr. Douglas Hauck may recommend a dental filling in Newport Beach, California, to repair a tooth that is:

  • Cracked
  • Chipped
  • Broken
  • Worn
  • Decayed

How Are Composite Fillings Placed?

Composite fillings are placed in just one pain-free appointment. During this appointment, your tooth will be comfortably numbed so you can have a relaxing experience. Then, our dentist will remove any present decay or damage. The remaining healthy tooth is cleaned and prepared for the new composite filling. In some cases, a special medication will be applied if the decay was close to the tooth’s nerve. Dr. Douglas Hauck will then place, shape, and polish your composite filling to improve the function and beauty of your smile.

After your tooth-colored filling is in place, you may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold, but this will subside in a short time. For more information on composite fillings, cosmetic dentistry, or any of the services we provide, contact our dental office today.
