comp-fillingA composite filling in Meridian, Idaho, is a dental treatment that is used to repair minor tooth problems such as cracks, holes, or fractures. Our team at Copperstone Dental uses composite fillings because they can be matched closely in color to your natural teeth and also contains no traces of mercury.

We give you this option because we want you to feel confident that you will have a stronger, more beautiful smile when you leave our office. You will have no signs of silver or gold in your mouth, and you will no longer have any dental issues. The process involved with filling a tooth begins with your dentist, Dr. Matthew Tuft, numbing the tooth that is affected by decay or injury. Next, he will use a drill or laser and remove the decay and harmful substances from the tooth. Once the debris are moved, he will deeply clean the tooth and insert the filling layer-by-layer. Once the tooth is completely full, your dentist will trim and shape the filling to fit perfectly in your mouth.
