Even with the best oral hygiene, cavities happen. Left untreated, dental decay can have serious effects on your smile.
At Dental Haus Germantown, we provide fillings that are more conservative, longer-lasting, and more attractive than metal fillings.

What are composite fillings and what are the treatment benefits?
Natural-LookingTraditional fillings consist of a metal amalgam that is very noticeable. In contrast, the composite that is used for white fillings resembles natural dental tissue so closely, it even has applications in cosmetic dentistry.
ConservativeThe best way to preserve your oral health is to remove as little natural tooth structure as possible. Composite resin bonds more easily with a tooth than metal, allowing us to preserve more of your natural dental tissue.
Metal amalgam expands and contracts when exposed to heat and cold. Over time, this can cause hairline cracks in an otherwise healthy tooth. Most of these patients will eventually require an inlay or onlay (a larger type of filling) or a porcelain dental crown to protect their oral health.

Amazing! I was having pain and called them and they immediately got me in. The staff was amazing and Dr. Correll was fantastic. I had a cavity that needed to be filled. He explained every step, was very knowledgeable, got me all patched up and on with my day, and more importantly got me out of pain! The filling was on my front tooth which of course I was nervous about. It looks so good and you can’t even tell I had it filled. So happy to have found these guys. Oh, also they have an office puppy.

Take a Closer Look at a Dental Filling
Does a Filling Hurt?
No. It is a common misconception that getting a dental filling hurts. In fact, seeking treatment for a cavity or dental damage can help eliminate painful symptoms such as toothaches, sensitivity, and more. You will be properly numbed with a local anesthetic before your dentist begins treatment. This ensures you are completely comfortable during the procedure. Clearfil bonding is also placed in the tooth before it is filled to further reduce post-treatment sensitivity for optimal comfort.
