About Dental Fillings

A dental filling procedure is one of the most recommended dental treatment options globally and is used to treat tooth decay and damage to a tooth. For many years, amalgam dental fillings were the only option when it came to treating tooth decay. However, modern dentistry advancements have led to tooth-colored dental fillings that can easily blend with the smile, making treatment virtually unnoticeable.

Why Dental Fillings?

Left untreated, tooth decay and cavities can become a serious problem. As decay continues to advance, it can reach the root canal, resulting in discomfort, pain, and even severe infection. Active decay in the mouth can also increase a patient’s risk for oral infections and periodontal gum disease.

Getting Dental Fillings Procedure

When it comes to getting dental fillings, the process is pretty quick and straightforward. First, our dentist will prepare the affected tooth, allowing the dental filling to be placed. Next, the dentist will place the dental filling material, sculpting and shaping it to the tooth. Once properly shaped, your dental filling will be cured/hardened.
