Dental fillings are a type of restorative treatment used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage, such as that caused by cavities, chipping or fracturing. Fillings work by “filling in” the cracks and holes in the teeth, restoring the tooth’s contours and appearance as well as its strength and function. While there are several types of fillings, our dentists have chosen to use only composite, or tooth-colored, fillings. Not only does this type of filling blend in with your teeth to create a more natural result, it also bonds better to your tooth structure to provide a better long-term solution for your oral health.
Fillings can be placed in just a single appointment. When you receive a filling, our dentists will remove the decayed and damaged portions of the tooth and clean it to remove all traces of decay. The filling material is then placed in the tooth and shaped to match its contours. Once in place, the filling is hardened to complete your treatment and provide a longer lasting restoration.
