When left untreated, even a small amount of dental decay can create a wide variety of oral health issues, including infection of the root of the tooth, dental abscesses, and even the removal of the affected tooth.
Fortunately, dental decay is very easy to treat when caught early, and dental fillings are the first line of defense for many people. Fillings are designed to restore teeth damaged by decay, prevent the spread of infection, and allow a tooth to perform its normal function without pain or additional damage.
Safe, easy, and affordable, dental fillings have become some of the most popular dental treatments for people of all ages.
Dental fillings are custom-crafted to the shape of a person’s tooth. They can be made from a variety of materials, including gold, amalgam, composite, and porcelain. The process of installing a filling is straightforward. Generally only local anesthesia to numb the area around the affected tooth is needed.
First, our gentle and expert dentist will remove any decayed parts of the tooth and clean the impacted area. From there, they will work with you to choose a filling material and place the filling in the newly cleaned cavity. The filling is molded to the unique shape and contour of the tooth, and will not impede chewing or eating once settled.
In cases where the decay is excessive, our dentist may recommend a crown or cap, in addition to a filling. If a person has extensive dental decay and needs multiple fillings at the same time, our professional dentist can perform several fillings in the same appointment. Dental fillings are a durable dental solution that can be completed quickly, so you can be on your way!
