A Quick Guide to Dental Fillings

A dental filling is a protective agent that is injected into and fills the cavity of a tooth, which helps to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay. Dental fillings prevent bacteria from entering the affected area, making your teeth more resistant to decay. By using the most updated techniques and materials, we can have your damaged teeth back to normal.

When you come in for an appointed dental filling, one of our dentists will first extract any rot or decay. The affected area will then be thoroughly cleaned. Once the area has been cleaned, we fill in the cavity by administering a filling material.

Types Of Dental Fillings

Dental fillings can be performed using any one of a number of materials. Each of the different materials comes with its own unique advantages. Consult with your specialist about which option may be right for you. Here is a brief list of the different materials available, as well as some of the pros and cons of each material.

Composite Fillings

  • Match the color of one’s natural teeth.
  • Can accumulate stains from coffee, tea, or tobacco products.
  • Have a duration lasting anywhere from 3-to-10 years.
  • Ideal for filling smaller cavities.

Gold

  • Highly durable, with a life of up to 20 years.
  • Easier on sensitive gum tissue.
  • Less cost-efficient than other options.

Amalgam

  • More cost-effective than gold.
  • Ideal for hard-to-see problem areas.
  • Often blends in better than gold.
  • Lasts 10-15 years on average.
