Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are designed to repair small fractures or treat an area of decay on your tooth. It can prevent any decay from spreading further and help restore some of the lost strength in the tooth.

Oral decay is one of the biggest threats to a patient’s oral health. While almost every cavity we see at Monarch Family Dental of Westminster is preventable, it is estimated that over 90% of adults have had a cavity.

If you develop a cavity, then getting a dental filling is typically the most effective way to treat this, helping to keep your mouth in the healthiest possible condition.

What is a Cavity Filling?

Dental fillings can be used to replace decayed or missing tooth structure. The actual “filling” can be made of either an amalgam (silver) or composite (tooth-colored) material; this material is bonded and formed to the tooth to mimic its natural shape.

Advantages of Tooth Fillings

  • Procedure is fairly quick and only takes one visit.
  • Filling material will be matched to your natural tooth structure making it virtually unnoticeable to most people.
  • Any decay will be removed prior to placing the filling, helping to prevent further treatment from being needed.
  • Fillings may also be an option to restore chipped or worn teeth and some small fractures.

The service was great and the fact that the fillings and the crown replacement was virtually pain free, is why I would recommend. The doctor took his time and did it the right way!
