Dental fillings are a type of restorative treatment used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. Our dentists may recommend a dental filling if your tooth has been damaged by a cavity, or by chipping or fracturing. There are two main types of fillings available – amalgam (silver) and composite (tooth-colored).
Fillings work to restore the tooth to its original structure, strengthening it and restoring your teeth to full function and health. Our dentists can typically place dental fillings in a single appointment. The process for placing a filling is simple. First, our dentists will remove the damaged or decayed portions of the tooth. The tooth will then be thoroughly cleaned to remove all remaining traces of decay. The filling is then placed into the tooth and shaped to match the shape and contours of the tooth. Our dentists then hardens and polishes the filling to complete the restoration.
