Our experienced Dentist provides dental fillings to repair your teeth after they have been damaged. Fillings are a type of restoration typically recommended for teeth with minor to moderate tooth damage, such as that caused by cavities, minor fracturing or chipping. Fillings literally “fill in” the damaged portions of the tooth to restore its original structure and function.
There are two main types of fillings — amalgam (silver) fillings and composite (tooth-colored) fillings. Both types of fillings can be completed in a single visit to our office. Our Dentist will begin by removing the decayed and damaged portions of the tooth and thoroughly cleaning it to remove any traces of decay. If you are receiving a tooth-colored filling, we will make sure to use a composite resin that matches the natural shade of your teeth. The filling material is then inserted into the treatment area and shaped to match your tooth’s shape and contours. It is then hardened and polished to provide a lasting restoration.
