Fillings are the first line of defense to preserve the integrity of a tooth that has suffered wear, breakage or decay.
When it comes to dental restoration, fillings are the most conservative way to protect and fix a damaged tooth. The composite resin or “tooth-colored” fillings are made of glass and plastic materials. They’re then bonded to the tooth to create a tight, strong seal, protecting against further dental problems.
- When a filling is placed, the decayed part of the tooth is removed.
- Minimal amounts of the tooth’s natural structure need to be removed to fill a cavity.
- The type of filling used depends on the extent of the damage, where the damaged tooth is located and if the patient is allergic to certain materials.
- Garden Home Dental also offers dental crowns for teeth that are too damaged to be filled.
