Your smile plays an important role in your life. When a cavity appears in one of your teeth, it can cause significant discomfort, impair your ability to chew, and leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance.

In a situation like this you should turn to the experienced dental professionals at Dr. Robert Doyle’s office in Martins Ferry, Ohio. In many cases, they can examine the tooth and repair a small cavity with a composite resin dental filling.

After taking some X-rays and examining the tooth Dr. Doyle will numb the area. Then they will remove all the decayed material to prepare the surface for a filling.

A composite resin filling is made from a special dental plastic that can be perfectly shaded to match the surrounding tooth enamel. This makes it a good option for repair a tooth that appears in your smile.

Once the cavity has been filled, Dr. Doyle will use a special ultraviolet light to harden it, and help it adhere to the surrounding tooth enamel. With good oral hygiene habits, your new dental filling should last for several years.
