Willow Tree Dental Offers Composite Fillings
Dentists use fillings to fill teeth after removing a cavity or filling a crack in the tooth. Composite fillings are tooth-colored and are a popular alternative to silver or gold fillings. This way, you can continue feeling confident in your smile, as composite fillings blend in perfectly with the look of your teeth. If you are looking for ways to fill in cracks or know you have a cavity that needs filled, call Willow Tree Dental at (304) 598-0400 for an appointment. We accept patients in Morgantown, WV, and the surrounding areas.
