Dental Fillings

NuSmile Dental & Orthodontics is a mercury-free practice that provide tooth-colored restorations for our patients. If you have a cavity or cracked tooth, Dr. Lawrence Wu may recommend a tooth-colored dental filling in San Jose, California. Our dentist would be happy to replace unwanted silver fillings with a more aesthetic composite material. If you are interested in receiving a filling, call 408-266-2800 to schedule an appointment.

A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if your tooth has been damaged by tooth decay (for example, if your tooth has a cavity), or if your tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function and to return your smile to good health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite fillings.

The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of your tooth, and then clean the tooth to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the tooth with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened for a lasting restoration.

If your tooth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and to schedule your next appointment with our team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
