Relieve pain and Smile again
If you have a tooth that is damaged, cracked, or chipped, we may recommend a tooth-colored or metal filling to restore your tooth for comfort.
A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if your tooth has been damaged by tooth decay (for example, a cavity), or if your tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function, and to return your smile to good health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: Amalgam fillings and composite fillings.
The process for placing a filling requires just one visit to our office. Our dentists will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of your tooth, and then clean the tooth to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the tooth with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s structure. The filling is then hardened for a lasting restoration.
If your tooth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling is a great choice for restoring your oral health and the function of your teeth.
Each type of filling has distinct advantages, so we recommend you schedule a consultation with one of our dentists to discuss your options. To set up an appointment, please contact us today.
