Dental FillingsAn Overview
Dental Fillings are one of the most effective solutions to address tooth decay and minor damage to the teeth. Dental fillings can prevent further damage to the affected tooth, as well as create a stable foundation to support the remaining tooth structure. Dental fillings are commonly used to address cavities in adults and pediatric patients.
Smile Artist in Altamonte Springs, FL offers composite resin fillings to provide a natural looking, effective solution to your dental concerns. Composite resin dental fillings, or “white fillings”, can be color matched to blend naturally with your existing smile. Drs. Clay Miller, Kirk Solberg, and Mark Williams can help patients achieve a beautiful, natural-looking smile with the use of composite resin dental fillings.
We can also replace old, dark fillings with a white filling for an instant smile makeover, supporting long term dental health. Composite resin fillings create a superior bond with the tooth structure, preventing future infection and decay.
Dr. Williams was able to accommodate my schedule with a same day consultation and both him and his team were very thorough with the process. Its obvious he's very knowledgeable and experienced. I trust him with my mothers new smileNatasha Satchwell
They got me scheduled in on very short notice. On a Friday when every other dentist I contacted close to home was closed on Fridays (it makes no sense to me). The staff was courteous, helpful and kind. The Doctor was very skilled and went out of his way to…Jean Douglas
Great office and staff! Everyone makes you feel like family there, and they’re really kind. My family and I have been seeing Dr. Solberg for many many years, and he has never tried to do some expensive long range plan, but has always tried to watch costs. In addition to…Donald Love
It's the most compassionate and professional dentistry I've ever seen, from admins to techs and docs. Both Drs. Solberg and Miller are highly trained yet very personable.

Dental Fillings What to Expect
Tooth decay is often an indication of poor oral health. Patients should follow a healthy oral hygiene routine and receive regular dental cleanings to minimize their risk of developing tooth decay. Brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash can improve your oral health. Visiting the dentist at least twice a year can prevent tooth decay and other complex dental problems.
The dental filling procedure can usually be completed in just one visit to our Altamonte Springs, FL dental office. Your Smile Artists dentist will apply a local anesthetic to the affected tooth or teeth, numbing the area. To adequately prepare the tooth for a filling, the infected tooth is thoroughly cleaned and cleared of decayed tissue. The filling is then carefully applied to the tooth, hardened into place by a special light, shaped, and polished for a natural looking luster and shine.
In advanced cases, Smile Artists may recommend a root canal, tooth extraction, or inlays/onlays to restore a damage or decay. Our team of dentists will work with you to determine the ideal treatment to address your dental needs. At Smile Artists, we are committed to the health and function of our patients’ smiles, and we work with you as an individual to help you achieve a healthier, lasting smile.
