A filling functions as a protective agent for the decaying areas of damaged teeth. This prevents invasive bacteria from entering the problem area, making your teeth more resistant to decay. By providing safe, effective, and convenient solutions for the problems associated with tooth decay, we can utilize fillings to restore damaged teeth to their normal shape and functionality.
When you come in for a filling on the day of your appointment, the dentist will first extract any decaying tooth material before the entire affected area of the tooth is cleaned. After cleaning, a filling material is used to fill the cavity. Your dentist will take the appropriate steps to ensure the filling is set and secure so you can get back to everyone’s favorite activity: eating!
There are various materials used for fillings that vary in price, physical resistance, and hardness. All modern filling methods and materials used by our team are designed to be safe, effective, and comfortable.
Types of Fillings
Before deciding on what type of filling will be the best fit, be sure to discuss all of the available options with one of our dental professionals. Our staff uses the following materials for dental fillings:
● Considered to be the optimal filling material
● Easily tolerated by gum tissues
● Lasts 20 years or more
● More expensive, but most durable
Amalgam (Silver Alloy)
● Used in hard-to-see areas (coloring is more noticeable than other materials)
● Composite resins are excellent for natural color matching
● Ideal for smaller fillings due to their hardness in relation to gold or silver
● They last from three to ten years
