For hundreds of years, dental fillings have been used to restore teeth. Dental fillings are placed in teeth where a dentist has had to remove tooth structure due to decay or fracture. In recent years filling materials have been substantially improved by many technological advancements. Although silver amalgam was the dominant choice years ago, today we have a couple other better options for tooth restoration including tooth colored resin composites that bond with adhesives and strengthen teeth, as well as glass ionomers that chemically bond to the tooth dentin, are less sensitive, and release fluoride to prevent recurrent decay.

We use these products for this type of treatment:

*Resin Composite and Glass Ionomer.

Decayed teeth require fillings to restore strength and health of natural teeth.

The decayed portion of the tooth is removed from the sound tooth structure.
Filling materials is shaped to match the look and feel of natural teeth. Traditionally, silver or amalgam material has been the filling of choice. Today, many modern materials can be used to mimic the color and texture of natural teeth.
