A dental filling is a common dental restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage, such as that caused by decay, fractures or chips. At True Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer dental fillings as a reliable solution to restore your tooth’s structure and function, ensuring your smile remains in good health. There are two primary types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite fillings.

The process of placing a dental filling is a straightforward and comfortable procedure that typically requires just one visit to our office. Here’s a step-by-step overview of what you can expect:

  1. Assessment: During your appointment, our experienced dentists will carefully assess your tooth’s condition to determine if a dental filling is the appropriate treatment option.
  2. Decay Removal: If decay is present, we will begin by gently removing the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth. This step is crucial to prevent the further spread of decay.
  3. Thorough Cleaning: After removing the decay, the tooth is meticulously cleaned to eliminate all traces of remaining bacteria and debris, ensuring a clean surface for the filling.
  4. Filling Placement: The filling material is then carefully placed in the prepared tooth cavity. The material is shaped to match the contours of your tooth, ensuring a seamless fit.
  5. Final Hardening: To ensure the longevity of the restoration, the filling is hardened using a specialized light or chemical process, creating a durable and long-lasting final result.
