Fillings Q & A
What are dental fillings?
Why might I need a filling?
Fillings can repair broken, cracked, or chipped teeth and teeth that are worn down because of grinding or nail-biting.
Are dental fillings right for me?
What happens during a dental filling placement?
While you relax in a comfortable dental chair, your dentist can numb the treatment area to optimize comfort during filling placement. They remove any decay and apply filling materials to the affected tooth in small layers using a special dental light. This light hardens each filling layer before your dentist applies the next layer.
Your provider might make small alterations during the process to ensure your filling perfectly matches your bite for optimal comfort and practicality.
How should I care for my new filling?
