If a tooth is affected by decay or damage, Dr. Sharon Sims may recommend a tooth-colored (composite) filling. Tooth-colored dental fillings are used to repair decayed teeth and restore the function and health of your smile. Your dentist will gently remove the decayed portion of the tooth and fill in the tooth with composite resin. Composite resin is a durable, tooth-colored material that provides a strong, aesthetic restoration. If you are experiencing tooth pain, or if it has been longer than six months since you visited the dentist, we invite you to call our Shreveport dental office today. We are eager to care for your smile!
