What are dental fillings?

Dental fillings are used to restore teeth from the effects of damage and decay. This can be caused from cavities or trauma to a tooth. The process of filling a tooth is quick and easy with the help of our dental office staff.

  • Aesthetics. Composite fillings offer a natural looking restoration to patient’s smiles. They fill decay with an almost unnoticeable finish.
  • Quicker Turnaround Time. Our team can provide a composite resin filling that will harden in a matter of seconds. Other restorations can take up to several days to harden and properly seal.
  • Versatility. Composite fillings can be used to restore cavities and chipped or broken teeth. Our dental staff can help correct a wide variety of issues with the help of composite fillings.
  • Strength. Fillings made out of composite resin materials provide a strong bond that helps to prevent future damage.
  • Less Drilling. Finally, composite fillings do not require any of the tooth’s structure to be removed which allows for a safer procedure that doesn’t require further damage to the tooth’s enamel.
