Fillings

 

At some point most of us will develop a cavity or cracked tooth that will require repair. There are several types of filling materials that can be used to repair and fill the tooth once it area has been prepared.

Composite resins are the most commonly used filling materials.  They are durable tooth-colored fillings that look natural and wear well.

Amalgam and gold fillings are less common but may be necessary for larger fillings.

If you brush and floss regularly you may never need a filling, but if you do, we will make the process as comfortable for you as possible.
