More About Fillings


Do you have a toothache? Sharp throbbing pain? Sensitivity to cold or hot food and drinks? You may need a filling!

Minor tooth repairs

Preventing fracture in small to midsize restoration

Combatting moderate chewing pressure

Aesthetically restoring the natural smile (in the case of visible fillings)

With the advancements in technology, most patients prefer to preserve a natural look to their smile by getting composite fillings.

A tooth filling replaces decayed or damaged tooth material in instances where the cavity or damage is relatively minor. Fillings protect teeth from further decay and resulting pain, reducing sensitivity by covering areas that are missing their protective enamel.

If your teeth are hurting or you think you have a cavity, schedule an appointment with us so we can do a comprehensive diagnoses and put together a treatment plan to fix your pain!


Common Questions


What happens when a dentist fills a cavity?

The dentist starts by removing any of the decaying and dead tooth enamel that cannot be saved with a small drill, and then cleans out the cavity to prepare it for filling. They then place the filling material into the cavity, and finish by cleaning and polishing the tooth.

What is the difference between temporary and permanent fillings?

Temporary fillings are generally recommended in cases where multiple sessions are required to design and cast a permanent filling. Since walking around with an open cavity is dangerous for your oral health, dentists will use a temporary filling to bridge the gap in time.
