Dental Fillings in Colorado Springs, CO
Your One Stop Dental Private Practice in Colorado Springs, CO
Dr. Seth Kimmelman offers the traditional “silver” fillings along with with the more natural-looking “tooth-colored” fillings at his Downtown Colorado Springs Dental office. Unlike other high volume practices, Dr. Kimmelman personally performs the entire restoration procedure – from the removal of decay to the placement of the filling material, with precision and attention to detail.
Dental fillings are done to remove decay and restore the affected tooth structure. It is called a filling because a new material fills the hole that was left by decay. Caught early, cavities can be treated easily and without unnecessary pain. If not treated, decay can lead to tooth pain and/or infection, requiring a root canal or extraction.
Dental composite or tooth-colored fillings are restorative procedures used to repair teeth affected by decay as well as to replace silver amalgam fillings. Dr. Kimmelman uses only the most advanced, biocompatible composite materials on the market.
