Dental fillings are used to treat teeth that are damaged due to tooth decay. You could have tooth decay if you are experiencing symptoms such as extreme sensitivity to cold and hot food and drinks, constant toothache, jaw pain and/or bad breath. Dental fillings help eliminate sensitivity and pain in the tooth and prevent any further damage from taking place. A simple check-up can determine whether your teeth need repair and if you need dental fillings. If necessary, an x-ray is taken to find out the extent of the damage.
Traditional Amalgam and Tooth Colored Fillings
We are proud to offer two different types of fillings for our patients. In addition to traditional amalgam or metal fillings, we are pleased to provide our patients with tooth colored fillings made from either porcelain or composite resins. They are the same color as your teeth! This makes them look much more natural.
