Dental fillings are a type of restorative treatment used to resolve issues caused by minor to moderate tooth damage, such as cavities or small chips in the teeth. The purpose of dental fillings is to restore the structure, strength and normal function of your teeth so you can once again enjoy a healthy smile.
Fillings are a simple treatment, working to literally “fill in” the damaged areas of the tooth. When you receive a dental filling our dentist can complete your entire treatment in a single visit, allowing you to leave Avent Ferry Family Dentistry with a renewed smile. The first step in your treatment is a thorough cleaning of your tooth to remove the decayed and damaged portions. A filling material is then applied to the tooth and carefully shaped to match its contours. Finally, the filling is hardened and polished to complete your treatment and give you a durable and long-lasting restoration.
If you have developed a cavity or sustained other minor tooth damage, a filling may be an excellent choice to restore your oral health and smile. Our dentist will examine your teeth closely to determine if a filling is the right option for you.
