Fillings in Denton, TX
You’ve just been told that you need a filling! You are not alone. Most people will need at least one filling in their lifetime. What exactly does that mean? A filling is a treatment for tooth damaged by decay that restores back to its normal function and shape while preventing further decay. It’s also the one of the most common procedures that takes place in the dental office, so there’s no need to worry, especially if you are maintaining a good brushing and flossing routine!
Dr. Caleb Mangum offers dental fillings to treat damaged teeth. Dental fillings can also be also used to repair cracked or broken teeth. Ask a team member about tooth-colored fillings that make your mouth look more natural and attractive.
In addition to tooth fillings to address tooth decay, Dr. Mangum also offers tooth bonding. Bonding is the application of composite resin to the surface of the tooth to repair it. It’s a simple, inexpensive cosmetic dental procedure that is usually completed in a single visit. There are lots of dental issues that bonding can correct. However, tooth bonding is most often used to repair chipped or discolored teeth. Bonding can also be used to close the large spaces between teeth, change the shape of teeth or make teeth appear longer.
