A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if a tooth has been damaged by decay (for example, if it has a cavity), or if a tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore tooth to its original color, function, & return your smile to good health. Our office only uses
the highest quality and most modern filling material- – composite, otherwise known as tooth colored fillings.
The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentists, Dr. Steven Huber, Dr. Samuel Pelkey & Associates, will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth, then clean it to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the tooth with the filling material and sculpt it to match your tooth’s color and shape. Finally, the filling is cured with a light, which hardens it for a lasting restoration.
If one of your teeth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and to schedule your next appointment with our team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
