Composite Fillings in Smyrna and East Point, GA

Protect Your Teeth Against Bacteria & Damage

Cavities aren’t the only reason to get a filling. For example, a filling can restore function and structure if your tooth is cracked, damaged, or worn down. At JLM Dental Studio, our Smyrna and East Point, GA dentist, Dr. Jarrett Manning, can use this general procedure to heal your tooth from various issues. A filling can result in a renewed smile that you’ll love to show off to friends and family.

What Are Composite Fillings?

A composite filling repairs a tooth affected by cracks, trauma, or bacteria. The decayed portion of the tooth is removed and then filled with this resin, a combination of hard and plastic-based materials to fit the natural shade of your smile.

Many types of fillings are available for patients — each with its advantages and disadvantages. During your initial consultation, you and your dentist will discuss the best option for restoring your teeth. Composite fillings are durable and can last up to 12 to 15 years with proper care and maintenance.

More Than Just Routine

Composite fillings offer patients a variety of benefits, restoring teeth affected by trauma and decay. Some of these benefits include:

  • Filling chipped or cracked teeth
  • Closing spaces or gaps between teeth
  • Matching your smile’s natural shade
  • Protecting teeth from future infections
  • Restoring worn-out teeth

Receiving Your Composite Fillings

Placing a composite filling can be completed in just one visit at either of our Smyrna or East Point, GA, offices. Dr. Jarrett will first apply a local anesthetic to ensure you’re comfortable. Next, she’ll remove any decay and thoroughly clean your tooth. Once your tooth is ready, Dr. Jarrett will place, shape, and polish your filling to restore the original structure.

Your dentist will also give you careful instructions on how to care for your filling after treatment. It’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene practices and schedule regular biannual dental visits with our office to extend the life of your fillings.

Happy patient at the dentist
