At our practice, we offer a range of filling options to repair damaged or decayed teeth and restore their function and appearance. Our team of experienced dentists and staff is committed to providing top-quality care and helping you achieve and maintain excellent oral health.
Types of Fillings We Offer:
- Composite (tooth-colored) fillings: These fillings are made of a mixture of glass or quartz filler and a resin binder, and are designed to match the color of your natural teeth. They are a popular choice because they are less visible than silver fillings and can be used on front and back teeth.
- Amalgam (silver) fillings: These fillings are made of a mixture of metals and have been used for decades to fill cavities. They are a strong and durable option, but may be more visible than composite fillings.
- Gold fillings: Gold fillings are made of a mixture of gold, copper, and other metals and are known for their durability and long lifespan. They are generally more expensive than other filling options.
How the Filling Process Works:
- First, your dentist will numb the area around the affected tooth to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
- Next, the dentist will remove any decay or damage from the tooth and clean the area to prepare it for the filling.
- Once the tooth is prepared, the dentist will place the filling material into the cavity and shape it to match the contours of your tooth.
- Finally, the dentist will use a special light to harden the filling material, and will make any final adjustments to ensure a smooth, comfortable bite.
