Repair your teeth and regain a healthy smile with a dental filling! Dental fillings are a type of restorative treatment used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage, such as that caused by cavities or minor fracturing and chipping. Fillings work by literally “filling in” the damaged areas of the tooth, restoring its original shape, structure and function.
There are two main types of dental fillings available, amalgam (silver) and composite (tooth-colored). Composite fillings are becoming increasingly popular, as they match the natural color of your tooth and work to provide support for the structure of your tooth.
Most dental fillings can be completed in a single appointment. During this visit, our dentist will remove any damaged tooth structure and thoroughly clean the tooth to remove all traces of decay. The damaged area will then be filled with the filling material and shaped to match the contours of the tooth. Finally, your filling will be hardened and polished to give you a lasting restoration. Our team will provide a local anesthetic as needed to ensure your comfort during this process.
