Dental fillings are a type of restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage, typically cavities or minor fracturing or chipping. Fillings restore the structure, shape and function of your tooth to restore your oral health and smile.
There are two types of dental fillings available: silver (amalgam) fillings and tooth-colored (composite) fillings. When you visit our office, our dentists will evaluate your needs and help you select the type of filling that will be most beneficial for you.
When you receive a dental filling, our dentists will begin by removing the decayed or damaged portions of the tooth, and clean in thoroughly to remove all traces of decay. The damage to the tooth will then be “filled in” with the filling material and shaped to match the contours of the tooth. Our dentists will finish by hardening the filling material. This process can be completed in a single visit to our practice.
We welcome you to call our office for more information about dental fillings and to schedule your appointment with our caring dentists.
