Defeat Decay With Pain-Free Fillings

When cavities begin to form in your mouth, it’s important to get fillings as soon you can from a trusted Nashville dental office. Leaving cavities untreated weakens your teeth and makes them more likely to break and chip.

Composite Fillings

When decay penetrates the surface of your tooth, cavities can severely infect the interior of your tooth, which eventually may require a root canal. Belle Meade Smile Center offers composite tooth fillings to treat cavities and make your mouth healthy.

Composite resin fillings are our preferred method of treating cavities because the color of your filling matches the natural shade of your tooth, making the filling hard to see.

These tooth-colored fillings reinforce your teeth, making them much stronger. In the past, they were only used for small to mid-sized cavities, but today there are new composite materials that provide strong and reliable restoration, even on molars!

There’s also less drilling required with modern fillings, so Dr. Shipp can preserve more of your natural tooth. Composite fillings are much safer than the silver fillings of days past, which typically contain trace amounts of mercury and other harmful compounds.

If you or a family member is interested in tooth-colored composite fillings, call our Nashville office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Philip Shipp!
