Say goodbye to tooth decay

Tooth decay is a fact of life, and it can affect people of all ages. Left untreated, cavities – small holes in teeth – can escalate into severe dental problems such as tooth loss or an infected tooth pulp. Fortunately, composite dental fillings offer a straightforward solution for repairing and restoring your oral health.

By filling in the damaged areas of the tooth, composite fillings not only prevent further decay but also bring the tooth back to its natural form and function. The process is simple and fast, and it revitalizes the appearance of your smile, leaving you with a healthy, confident grin.

At Tidewater Dental, we offer a convenient and comfortable dental filling experience. Request an appointment at one of our convenient locations and say goodbye to tooth decay!

Metal-free fillings for a brighter, healthier smile

If you want to keep your smile looking natural, composite fillings are the perfect solution. Unlike metal fillings, non-metal fillings are made of composite materials that blend in seamlessly with the color of your teeth, making them virtually undetectable. This eliminates the risk of having unsightly metal fillings that can detract from the appearance of your smile.

Not only do non-metal fillings blend in with your teeth, but they are durable and long-lasting, preserving your oral health and smile. With non-metal fillings, you can smile confidently, knowing that your smile looks natural and beautiful.

At Tidewater Dental, we can also help you safely remove your amalgam fillings and replace them with composited fillings, giving you the smile you deserve!
