Dental Fillings

Composite fillings are restorations that are free of metal alloys. Instead, they allow Dr. Bell to repair your tooth in a way that looks almost invisible to everyone else.

Each and every white filling performed in our Alexandria dental office is color-matched to the specific shade of your natural tooth enamel. With dozens of shades available, Dr. Bell’s patients often choose to have their existing metal fillings replaced with our composite ones. In the end, your tooth will look natural and whole all over again.

Minimally Invasive Treatments in Alexandria

One of the most unique features of white composite fillings (other than their color) is the material’s ability to bond directly to the tooth surface. That means less tooth preparation is involved, and Dr. Bell is able to preserve as much natural, healthy enamel as possible!

Our Alexandria and DC tooth colored fillings are:

  • Smaller
  • “Invisible” to everyone else
  • Free of mercury
  • Healthier for your teeth

Symptoms often include sensitivity, sharp or rough edges, and food packing between your teeth during meals. These signs aren’t something that should be overlooked. Instead, it is your body telling you that something is wrong. If you experience any type of irregularity with your smile, you will want to see Dr. Bell right away to discuss all your restorative options including crowns and bridges.
