Restore Your Smile With Dental Fillings
To help restore the health of your teeth and mouth, dental fillings are used to fill cavities caused by decay, chips, or cracks, removing decay, and restoring strength to a damaged tooth.

What are the main differences between amalgam and composite fillings?
Amalgam (silver) fillings are made from a combination of metals, including silver, tin, and copper. They are strong and durable but can be visible when you smile. Composite (tooth-colored) fillings use resin to bond directly with your natural teeth, blend in with your smile, and this material requires that less of your tooth be removed for placement.
How is a filling placed?
Once our dentist has identified the affected area and determined whether to use amalgam or composite resin materials, the area will be numbed with a local anesthetic. Next, decay will be removed before your tooth is filled, shaped, polished, and sealed.
What benefits do fillings offer?
Fillings can help restore a tooth to its original form and function, as well as prevent further damage from occurring. They can also reduce pain and sensitivity, which can be caused by exposed nerve endings in cavities.
Is everyone a candidate for fillings?
Anyone with cavities, chipped, or cracked teeth may benefit from this restorative procedure.
