Dental Fillings WoodbridgeBack

To treat a cavity, the decayed portion of your tooth is removed, and a dental filling is applied to “fill” and protect the tooth. Dental fillings are used for other applications including in the repair of cracked or broken teeth that have been worn down from nail biting or teeth grinding.

Before the filling can be applied, you will be given a local anesthetic before the decay is removed. Then your dentist will test the area to make sure no traces of decay remain on the tooth, and then a dental filling can be applied on the tooth.

Today, several types of dental fillings are available. Options available today range from more costly options like porcelain, silver and gold. Composite resin fillings, made up of plastic and glass materials, are more affordable and more commonly used. After consulting with your dentist, you will receive fillings appropriate to your needs that will take your desired look and budget into consideration.
