Here at The Dental Studio on 30th in Farmington, New Mexico, we understand just how much your smile’s appearance means to you. When one of your front teeth develops a cavity, it can hamper your self-confidence while also causing discomfort. To repair the tooth decay and restore your smile’s appearance our dentist can apply a composite resin filling.

After taking some X-rays and examining the tooth, our dentist will numb the area with an injection of Novocaine. He will then remove all the decayed tooth enamel to prepare the surface for a filling. The material they suggest will be based on the new fillings location in your mouth.

A composite resin filling is made from a special dental-grade plastic that can be perfectly shaded to match the surrounding tooth enamel. This makes it a good option for repair a tooth that appears in your smile.

Once the filling has been applied, your The Dental Studio on 30th dentist will use a special ultraviolet light to cure it and adhere the material to the surrounding tooth enamel. With good oral hygiene habits, your new filling should last for several years.   

If you live in the Farmington, New Mexico area and have a cavity on a tooth in your smile, please call 505.592.0477 to have it treated by our dental specialists at The Dental Studio on 30th. Dr. Brett Riche and our team look forward to helping your smile!
