Basic Dental Health
A tooth filling restores teeth damaged by decay back to its normal look and feel. In more severe cases, patients may feel distortion or discomfort from the affected tooth. By cleaning out decay and filling with a tooth-colored resin material, the tooth will regain the structure lost to decay while avoiding further damage.
What to expect at my appointment
Dental fillings can be done quickly and painlessly if treated immediately. Our office can complete your filling in the same day and you can return to eating and drinking as soon as the numbness subsides. We use a tooth-colored resin material that matches the look and feel of your teeth. Not all cavities will hurt initially so regular dental appointments are recommended to avoid further rotting and to have the tooth filled as soon as possible. Baby teeth need the same attention to insure proper space for the permanent teeth to grow.
