If you have a cavity, Dr. Sonney L Chong may recommend a dental filling in Sacramento, California, to restore the health of your tooth. Our dentist will remove the decayed portion of tooth and fill the area with the dental filling material. At our dental office, we utilize composite dental fillings, which are white.

Composite dental fillings have many advantages to you and your smile. The shade of the filling material can be matched to that of your natural teeth. Because of this, they are very discrete. Composite fillings are a great choice for the front teeth. Composite filling material bonds to your tooth, which provides greater support for the dental filling. In addition to being used to treat tooth decay, composite fillings can be used to repair broken, chipped, or worn-down teeth.

Before placing your filling, our dentist will use a local anesthetic to numb the area. The decayed portion of the tooth is removed and the area is tested to make sure that all damaged material has been taken out. The area is then cleaned of bacteria and debris. Your composite filling is then placed in layers by Dr. Sonney L Chong. As each layer is applied, it is cured and hardened with a special light. Once all of the layers have been placed, our dentist will shape, trim, and polish the restoration.
