Dr. Shaileshkumar Bhatt may recommend a dental filling if your tooth has a cavity or has sustained other minor damage from chipping or cracking. Fillings work by literally “filling in” the holes and damaged areas of your tooth to restore its original structure, strength and function.
At Hacienda Heights Family Dentistry, we have chosen to use tooth-colored dental fillings. Traditionally, dental fillings have been made of a metal amalgam material. However, this can cause problems for your oral health long-term. By using a composite filling material instead, our dentist and team can promote your long-term oral health as well as give you a more natural solution for your smile. Additionally, composite fillings last longer and will actually work with your tooth to strengthen it.
Your dental filling can be completed in a single appointment. Our dentist will remove the damaged and decayed portions of the tooth, clean it and then place the filling. The filling will be shaped to match the contours of your tooth, hardened and polished. This will give you a natural-looking and long-lasting restoration for your tooth and smile.
