At Gunnerson Dental We Provide Tooth Colored Fillings

Why Does Dr. Gunnerson Recommend Removing Silver Fillings?

When you receive a filling at Gunnerson Dental, you will receive strong, natural-looking composite fillings to restore your tooth’s health. If you have received silver, or amalgam, fillings in the past, Dr. Gunnerson can also remove your silver filling and replace it with a composite one. These fillings and restorations protect your teeth from further decay while keeping your smile aesthetically beautiful.

What Is The Benefit Of A New Filling?

A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. Dr. Gunnerson 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.

The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Dr. Gunnerson 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.
