Does your tooth have decay or a cavity? Are any of your teeth cracked or broken? When a tooth has a cavity, Gerald V. Hansen, DDS, may recommend a dental filling in Reno, Nevada. When treating a cavity, our dentist will remove the tooth decay and fill the area with a filling material. Some filling materials can also be used to repair chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. Our dental office offers composite fillings.

Composite fillings are also called tooth-colored fillings and are made of plastic and glass materials. Composite fillings are made to match the color of your natural teeth, so they are aesthetic. They are particularly desirable for use in the front teeth or other visible teeth. Composite fillings are chemically bonded to your teeth, which gives them more strength. Composites are versatile and can be used to repair chipped, broken, or worn teeth.
