When tooth structure is lost due to decay, fracture, or erosion from acidic drinks or gastric reflux the missing part of the tooth is restored with a dental restorative material. The material is bonded to the tooth for strength and retention.This procedure is commonly referred to as a "filling." Dr. Klocko uses high quality, strong, natural looking composite resins for this procedure. Composite fillings can be used for front or back teeth. Dr. Klocko will choose the type of composite needed for your specific restorative needs.
