Dental fillings are one of the ways that our team can address decay or damage to your smile. If a portion of your tooth has been fractured or lost to a cavity, our dentists can fill the damaged area, molding the material to match the natural appearance of the original tooth. This can also halt unwanted bacteria from accessing and damaging more of the tooth before it has a chance to reach the sensitive tissue of your inner tooth, preventing the need for a root canal treatment in the future.
Your dental filling may be made of one of two common materials: composite resin or amalgam. While both can be used to restore your oral function and help you achieve a healthier, more beautiful smile, they are also different in significant ways. Amalgam fillings are known for their strength and fracture-resistance as the combined metals create a more durable restoration. Composite fillings are also resistant to moderate pressure but are a natural tooth color, making them a popular choice. Our dentists can talk with you to help you determine which filling material is the right choice to address your dental health needs.
