A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to
moderate tooth damage.
We may recommend a filling if a tooth has been damaged by decay (for example, if it has a cavity) or suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function and return your smile to good health.
Composite restorations, or fillings, use a natural colored resin to repair the damaged area of the tooth. The resin material used is stronger, more discreet (matching the color of your teeth) and is more durable for a lasting restoration.
The process for placing a dental filling requires just one visit to our office. “Dr J” will numb you first to keep the procedure as comfortable and relaxed as possible. He’ll then remove the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth, cleaning it to remove all traces of decay. “Dr J” will fill the area and mold it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling hardens for a lasting restoration.
If one of your teeth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function.
Call us at our Lakewood Washington office today to learn more about dental fillings and schedule your next appointment with Dr J.
We look forward to caring for your health and well-being in the Lakewood Washington and Tacoma, DuPont, University Place, Spanaway surrounding areas.
