Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are used to replace areas of decayed tooth.  We use a filling material that is tooth colored and mercury-free, called composite resin. We do not use amalgam (silver) fillings.


Dr. Lewis will place a topical gel on the gum area where the injection for the local anesthetic will be done. If the child is very young or nervous, he may use nitrous oxide before giving the injection. The decayed area of they tooth will be gently removed and replaced with composite resin filling material. The tooth will then be polished and checked for proper occlusion (fit between the upper and lower teeth).
