Dental fillings are the most commonly performed dental procedures in offices nationwide. At Thousand Oaks Family Dentistry, we use a variety of tooth-colored composite materials to work in a number of different situations. No matter what the intent of the treatment, the results are always cosmetically beautiful.
At our Thousand Oaks office, Dr. Kari Ann Hong does not place any amalgam (sometimes referred to as “metal” or “mercury”) fillings. We feel that the strength and endurance of composites have matched their amalgam counterparts, while adding a much improved esthetic component. These materials allow us to place fillings in a timely manner and provide years of service to your teeth.
We place fillings for many different reasons- decayed teeth, broken teeth, cosmetic bonding (sometimes in place of dental veneers) or even to repair acid erosion. However, the end result is always geared towards your esthetic satisfaction. If you would like more information, please fill out the contact form below!
