Our dentist may use a dental filling to repair teeth that have become compromised because of cracks, decay, or fractures. Our team at Bear River Family Dental uses both composite (tooth-colored or white) fillings and amalgam (silver) fillings. In a single appointment, Dr. Justin Bauer will remove the tooth decay and replace it with either a tooth-colored or silver filling, depending on your preference. To learn more about how a dental filling in Brigham City, Utah, can help you, we invite you to contact our office today at 435-723-6120.
A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if a tooth has been damaged by decay (for example, if it has a cavity) or suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function, and return your smile to good health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite fillings.
The process for placing a dental filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth, then clean it to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the area with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened by our dentist for a lasting restoration.
If one of your teeth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and schedule your next appointment with our dentist and team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
