Repair cavities and restore your dental health with our durable, aesthetic fillings. Choose from a variety of materials to match your specific needs.

Dental fillings are a common and essential procedure used to repair minor tooth decay and prevent further deterioration. At Select Dental Office, we use state-of-the-art materials and techniques to ensure your fillings not only restore your teeth but also blend seamlessly with them, enhancing both function and aesthetics.

Why Dental Fillings Are Necessary

Dental fillings are required when cavities, caused by tooth decay, create holes in your teeth. Fillings help restore the integrity and function of the tooth and prevent the decay from progressing further, which could lead to more serious dental issues, including infections or the need for a root canal.

Types of Fillings We Offer:

  • Composite Resin: Tooth-colored fillings that provide excellent durability and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid size restorations. They can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth.
  • Amalgam: Silver-colored fillings, known for their strength and longevity, ideal for filling cavities in the back teeth where chewing pressure is greatest.
  • Gold Fillings: Highly durable and preferred by some for their aesthetic and resistance properties, though they are typically more expensive.
  • Porcelain Fillings: Also known as inlays or onlays, made from porcelain to match the natural color of your teeth and resistant to staining.

The Filling Process:

  1. Initial Consultation: Examination to determine the extent of the decay and the best filling material.
  2. Preparation: The decayed tooth material is gently removed, and the area is cleaned.
  3. Filling Placement: The chosen filling material is applied in layers, with a special light used to harden each layer if using composite resin.
  4. Finishing Touches: After the filling is in place, it’s shaped to match the tooth's natural contour, then polished to prevent wear and staining.

Benefits of Getting Fillings at Select Dental Office:

  • Prevention of Further Decay: Fillings stop decay from advancing deeper into the tooth, which could lead to more severe dental issues.
  • Restoration of Tooth Functionality: Fillings restore normal tooth function, allowing you to chew without pain.
  • Aesthetic Improvements: Especially with tooth-colored fillings, we can enhance or maintain the natural appearance of your teeth.
