Tooth-Colored Fillings

Dental Fillings in Newark, Ohio

Our expert dentists specialize in repairing teeth that have been damaged by fractures or long-term decay. Composite or "white" fillings utilize the latest advancements in dental materials and allow us to restore your tooth to its original shape and function, while matching to your teeth's existing color to naturally blend with your smile. Older metal fillings draw unwanted attention and do not bond to the tooth like modern dental composites.

  • We painlessly numb your tooth before any work is begun.
  • Areas are cleaned thoroughly and any decay removed before fillings are placed.
