At Dentistry of Gilbert, we understand that dental fillings are a fundamental aspect of maintaining oral health. Our team provides high-quality dental fillings to repair cavities and restore the functionality and aesthetics of your teeth.
Understanding Dental Fillings
Dental fillings are used to treat tooth decay, commonly known as cavities. The process involves removing the decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area and then filling the cavity with a filling material. This treatment prevents further decay and strengthens the tooth. Fillings can be made from various materials, including amalgam, composite, porcelain or gold, each offering different benefits.
Your Dental Filling Procedure
When you come to our dentist and team for a dental filling, the procedure typically involves:
- Identifying and removing decayed tooth material.
- Thoroughly cleaning the cavity to prepare for the filling.
- Carefully placing the chosen filling material into the cavity.
- Shaping and polishing the filling to ensure a comfortable bite and natural appearance.
Benefits of Dental Fillings
