Dental Fillings Help Repair & Strengthen Teeth
In addition to restoring and strengthening teeth that are experiencing decay, dental fillings also help patients relieve pain, maintain proper alignment and bite, and restore the function of a damaged tooth.

Which types of fillings are available and what benefits do they offer?
Dental fillings are typically made from amalgam, composite resin, or ceramic materials. Amalgam fillings are known for their durability and strength, while composite and ceramic fillings can be custom-colored to match your natural teeth color. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, these types of fillings are typically less sensitive than metal fillings.
How are dental fillings placed?
Once anesthesia has been applied, our dentist will remove the portion of your tooth that’s experiencing decay. Depending on the tooth and your preferences, it will then be filled with the filling material that will best meet your needs.
Can anyone have a dental filling placed?
Patients with a cavity or damage to the tooth structure are candidates for dental fillings. Regardless of what type of filling is chosen, our dentist will discuss your best options based on the severity and location of the damage.
How should I care for a tooth that's received a filling?
It's important to continue with proper oral hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing twice each day. Additionally, you should have regular checkups with a dentist for ongoing monitoring of the tooth and its filling material.
