Professional Tooth Fillings

Professional Tooth Fillings

At All Smiles Dentistry, we offer professional tooth fillings to repair cavities, cracked or worn teeth or to create a more pleasing appearance. We’ve noticed that fillings can have a scary or negative vibe around them for most people. A filling can seem like the end of the world!

Have no fear, All Smiles’s professional staff offers a calm and gentle atmosphere to make your tooth filling as comfortable as possible.

What are professional tooth fillings?

Is this your first time getting a filling?? If so, lucky you! You’ve done a great job taking care of your teeth. Simply put, a filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape.

 

How does the dental filling procedure work?

You like to know what to expect, which is great! When a dentist gives you a filling, he or she first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.

 

What are the types of filling material?

No one type of filling is best for everyone. What’s right for you will be determined by the condition of your teeth, your goals and the recommendation by your dentist. Here are a few common filling options:

Composite Fillings

Composite fillings can match the color of your teeth for a more natural appearance. Your dentist will mix the composite and place the mixture directly into the cavity, where it will harden. Composites may not be the ideal material for large fillings as they may chip or wear over time

Glass Ionomer Restorations

Glass ionomer restorations chemically bond to teeth and release fluoride over time.

Gold fillings

Gold fillings are a more custom solution, which are specially ordered then cemented into place. Gold is a long-term solution, lasting up to, or more than, 20 years.

It’s always best to talk to your dentist about the best professional tooth fillings for you.
