When your tooth is damaged by minor decay or injury, we can often effectively repair the tooth with a restoration called a dental filling. Fillings are common restorations used to repair the tooth enamel and restore the tooth’s original structure and health. To repair the tooth, our dentists will first gently remove the decay from the tooth and clean the tooth. The filling is then applied directly to the tooth’s surface, and we will sculpt the filling to fit comfortably and aesthetically with the natural shape and contours of the tooth. Once the filling is properly sculpted and shaped, we harden it and make sure it fits your bite properly. A conservative, simple treatment, dental fillings can usually be completed in just one visit to Every Smile. Dr. Lee and Dr. Kohler, along with the rest of our friendly dental team, will make certain that your treatment is as pain-free and comfortable as possible.
With proper dental care, your dental filling can last for many years to come. Be sure to care for your smile by brushing and flossing every day, and visit our dentists every six months for a regular teeth cleaning and dental exam.
