Fillings are used to restore a tooth damaged by decay and bring it back to its normal function and shape. Fillings also help prevent further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria can enter. If you are in need of a filling, we will work with you to determine which type of filling material is best for you. The best option for you will depend upon the extent of repair you need, where in your mouth the filling will be placed and individual preferences.
Once a filling material is selected, we will remove the decayed tooth material and clean the affected area. Then we will fill the tooth with the filling material of your choice.
