A dental filling is a type of restoration used to address minor to moderate tooth damage. This treatment is often recommended when a tooth has suffered damage from decay, such as the presence of a cavity, or when it has sustained minor tooth damage such as fracturing or chipping. The goal of a dental filling is to restore the tooth’s original structure, strength and functionality while enhancing overall oral health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite (tooth-colored) fillings. Composite fillings are increasingly popular and commonly used as they can match the natural color of your teeth.

The process of placing a dental filling typically requires just one visit to Smiles At Glenwood. Our dentists will begin by removing the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth, ensuring all traces of decay are eliminated. The affected area of the tooth is then filled with the chosen filling material and our dentists will expertly shape it to match the natural contours of your tooth. Finally, we will harden the filling, ensuring a durable and long-lasting restoration.

If you are dealing with a decayed or damaged tooth, a dental filling can be an excellent option to restore your oral health and function.
