If you have a toothache, you might need a filling. Tooth decay, or a cavity, can affect even the most diligent dental patients. Dr. Hale places only composite resin fillings, which are metal-free, mercury-free, and blend seamlessly into an all-white smile.
The process of placing a composite filling begins with removal of tooth decay. Dr. Hale uses a gentle technique to ensure your comfort during this process. He then tints liquid composite resin to match your tooth. The resin is placed into the cavity, then hardened with a curing light. Dr. Hale will make sure that your teeth come together properly after the filling is complete, then make adjustments if necessary.
Don’t suffer with a toothache. Dr. Hale can relive your pain, while improving your oral health and keeping your all-white smile intact. He can also replace old, worn fillings with strong and durable composite resin. If you live near Bonita Springs, Estero, or Lehigh Acres, call our Naples office today for an appointment.
