Dental Fillings

A dental filling is a procedure designed to restore a tooth by addressing damage or decay and filling the remaining space with a specialized, dentally-compatible material.

The choice of material depends on your dentist's recommendation and any allergies you may have. Options include porcelain or composite resin.

Dental fillings are necessary to address teeth damaged by decay or cavities. These dental issues can affect the tooth's interior dentin layer, leading to decay or cavities over time. To prevent further damage, a dental filling is recommended to fill the damaged space.



The Process of Getting a Dental Filling

During your dental filling appointment at Smile Creators, our skilled dentists ensure your comfort before commencing the procedure. We offer various anesthetic options.
The process begins with your dentist using specialized instruments to remove decay or damage, thoroughly sanitizing and cleaning the tooth.

Once the area is clean, your dentist prepares it and performs the filling. The tooth is then refined and polished to the appropriate shape and size. Depending on the material, multiple layers may be applied, with each layer hardened using a UV light.

Why Dental Fillings

Most dental fillings can last 10 years or more due to their durable materials. However, the actual lifespan depends on factors such as oral hygiene and the filling material used.

The cost varies based on individual needs, decay extent, and filling material. Certain materials like composite resin or ceramic can match existing teeth.

We can assist in determining insurance coverage and offer expert advice on the best options for your needs
