Dental fillings protect teeth as well as add strength and durability. We offer the choice of cosmetic bonded white restoration (“white fillings”) or the more traditional silver filling.
Cosmetic bonded dental fillings use a durable, biocompatible composite resin which comes in a range of tooth colored shades to perfectly match natural teeth. Traditional silver fillings offer long term durability and protection.
Dental fillings are used as part of a conservative treatment plan aimed at preserving the natural tooth. A dental filling is used when a tooth is weakened because of cracks, chips, breaks, cavities or other reasons. The filling is put in place to not only restore strength, but to protect the tooth from future damage or decay.
If a tooth has more significant decay or damage, you might be a candidate for an inlay or onlay, which are porcelain and/or gold restorations that are bonded to the tooth to hold it together and add strength and protection.
We believe that routine oral care builds the foundation for long term dental health. Identifying problems in the early stages allows us to recommend the most conservative methods for treatment, preserving as much of the natural tooth as possible and saving the patient from expensive and uncomfortable procedures.
