A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if your tooth has been damaged by tooth decay, or if your tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function, returning your smile to optimal health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite fillings.

The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of your tooth, then clean the area thoroughly. We fill the tooth with the filling material then shape it to match your natural tooth. Finally, the filling is hardened for a lasting restoration.

If your tooth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and to schedule your next appointment with our team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
