No one wants them but they tend to show up anyway in smiles of all ages and stages of life – cavities! With all of the dental technology available today, getting a filling is far less invasive and it is fast. Dr. Ottesen uses metal-free fillings composed of tooth-colored composite materials to match seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. They have strong, durable bonding properties, making it a sensible solution for restoring decayed or fractured teeth. Composite bonding does not require the removal of very much tooth surface and is a great alternative to the controversial metal fillings which can expand over time putting your teeth at risk of cracking.
