How Tooth Fillings Work

Simply put, a filling is used to restore a tooth damaged by decay. When teeth begin to decay, they are degraded in terms of both their appearance and their function. Not only do decaying teeth look bad, they also make it difficult or painful to eat many of your favorite foods. The addition of a dental filling to a decayed tooth restores its natural shape and function, so you can eat normally, without worrying about causing further damage to the tooth structure.

When adding a filling to a tooth, we'll start by removing any decayed material present inside of your tooth. After removing this material, we'll thoroughly clean the affected area, ensuring that all traces of decayed material are gone. Finally, we'll add a filling material to the cavity area. Fillings are made from many types of materials, including gold, silver, composite resins, and porcelain. Our dentists will walk you through your options, so you can make an informed decision as to which type of filing is best for you.

The Importance of Having Teeth Fillings Put in Right Away

In the event that you do need fillings, it's very important to have them taken care of immediately, to avoid any further tooth decay. Waiting too long to have a filling added to your cavity can have negative consequences. In some cases, it may mean that your tooth will need to be removed entirely. If you're interested in having a dental filling added to one or more of your teeth, get in touch with our practice right away to schedule an appointment; we look forward to hearing from you.
