Fillings serve multiple purposes such as filling in a cavity, filling a cracked /damaged tooth through bonding, as well as seal the tooth when an infection has been removed.
This is a highly durable filling, often lasting a lifetime for some patients. Commonly referred to as “silver” fillings, dental amalgams are a long-used, trusted filling.
Dental Fillings Procedure
Fillings take no longer than an hour to complete. Composite resin fillings generally take a bit longer than other options, but they come with their own set of benefits. Local anesthesia is applied if necessary to numb the area so that you are comfortable throughout.
