Although fillings can be pretty common, Dr. Mark Connolly never takes for granted the special needs of his patients. Our dental patients come from all over middle TN to our Murfreesboro, TN location for fillings and other dental work. Some patients may have certain allergies or other circumstances which may not allow for certain types of fillings or may require alternative options. Dr. Connolly carefully examines each of his patients anything that looks abnormal will then be closely checked with special instruments. He may also X-ray your entire mouth or a section of it. The type of treatment he chooses will depend on the extent of damage caused by decay. Composite (tooth colored) fillings are used to repair cracked, fractured, and decaying teeth. The damaged or decayed part of a tooth will be removed before being repaired with a composite filling. Composite fillings are a semi-permanent solution and may have to be replaced in the future. Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, decay will be removed as necessary. From there, a filling is placed.
