Dental Fillings

You need a filling when tooth decay has caused a hole (cavity) to form on a toothsurface. If you don’t get a filling, the cavity will get worse. It may cause pain and then an abscess . This may lead to more severe problems, such as bone loss.

Most people need at least one tooth filling in their lifetime. Dental fillings are most commonly used to treat cavities, but they’re also used to repair cracked or broken teeth, or teeth that have been worn down over time.

Most dental filling procedures feature the following:

  • Topical anesthetic to numb the area of treatment
  • Decay removal from the affected teeth
  • Tooth restoration using a composite or amalgam filling
  • Bite check to make sure your teeth align comfortably
