Fillings

We make hearing “You need a filling” Okay…

MORE INFORMATION

Many times when a tooth is decayed it can be restored to function with a dental filling. Teeth with small cavities or slight chips and fractures can oftentimes be fixed with a filling.  We offer several filling material choices to best suit the situation and your needs.

  • Composite Resin – Resin fillings, or “white fillings”, are made of a durable plastic material. These fillings are bonded into place with a dental adhesive and are the most esthetic direct restorations available.
  • Dental Amalgam – Amalgam fillings, or “silver fillings”, are a tried and true restorative material that has been around for ages.
  • Glass Ionomer – GI is a material that is used in low-stress bearing, low chewing force areas.  It is also a “white filling”, although not always as esthetic as resin restorations.  GI is a great alternative material for use in children, elderly patients, or patients who experience dry mouth, as it has the ability to absorb and release fluoride.

We can't wait to see you!
