Composite Resin Fillings

When you develop early decay (cavity), the best option is to get a dental filling. A Composite resin is a type of material that is used to fill a cavity after the tooth decay has been removed. By treating a decayed tooth early, we prevent the decay from spreading further. If decay is left untreated, it can continue to destroy healthy enamel and spread towards the sensitive pulp (nerve tissue) located in the root canal – which can cause discomfort and the need for more extensive dental treatment.


When you come in for your filling appointment you will receive local anesthesia in the area to be treated. Dr. Mann will carefully remove the decay on your tooth and place the restoration which has been color matched to your specific tooth. When treatment is completed, your tooth will have a natural appearance and function normally.

What are some reasons you will need a filling?

  • Chipped teeth

  • Closing space between two teeth

  • Cracked or broken teeth
