What Are Fillings?

Fillings are dental restorations used to treat tooth decay, also known as cavities. When tooth decay is detected early, fillings offer an effective solution for repairing the damaged tooth structure and preventing further deterioration.

State-of-the-Art Materials and Techniques

At Nelson Family Dentistry, we use state-of-the-art materials, such as composite resin, for our fillings. These tooth-colored fillings are custom-matched to the shade of your natural teeth, providing a discreet and aesthetically pleasing solution. Our skilled dental team ensures that your fillings are precisely placed, restoring the shape and function of your tooth seamlessly.

The Filling Process

The process of getting a filling typically involves the following steps:

  1. Diagnosis: During your dental exam, we will identify any areas of tooth decay that require treatment with fillings.
  2. Preparation: The affected tooth is carefully cleaned, and the decayed portions are removed, creating space for the filling.
  3. Filling Placement: The tooth-colored filling material is skillfully applied and shaped to restore the tooth’s structure and appearance.
  4. Polishing: The filling is polished to create a smooth and natural-looking surface that blends with your surrounding teeth.

Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings offer several advantages over traditional metal amalgam fillings:

  • Aesthetics: Composite resin fillings match the color of your natural teeth, making them virtually invisible.
  • Preservation of Tooth Structure: Tooth-colored fillings bond directly to the tooth, requiring less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to amalgam fillings.
  • Reduced Sensitivity: Composite resin fillings are less likely to cause temperature sensitivity in the teeth.

Caring for Your Fillings

With proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits, your fillings can last for many years. Our dental team will provide you with guidance on how to care for your fillings to ensure their longevity and effectiveness.
