If you have a cavity, our prosthodontist will likely recommend a dental filling. Composite fillings are made of a tooth-colored resin and are used to match the color of your natural teeth. They are also less likely to fracture your tooth than other types of fillings since the composite will help strengthen the remaining enamel. Dental fillings can be made from a variety of materials, including gold, silver amalgam (a metal alloy), composite resin (a plastic material) or ceramic. Our prosthodontist will help you choose the best material for your needs. There are many benefits to getting dental fillings, including:
- Preventing further damage to your teeth
- Restoring the strength and function of your teeth
- Improving the appearance of your smile
The procedure for getting a dental filling is relatively simple. The process begins with the removal of the decayed tooth enamel. The area is then cleaned and prepared for the filling. Once the area is ready, the composite material is placed and shaped to match the contours of your tooth. Finally, the composite filling is hardened with a special light.
Come in for your regular dental exam to see if you may have a developing cavity. Then our prosthodontist will help give you a dental filling at a later appointment to help get you back on track with your oral health. Call to schedule your appointment today.
