Fix a Damaged Tooth With a Quality Tooth Filling

Dental fillings are most often used to repair cavities, which are spots of tooth decay caused by oral bacteria. Your dentist can remove the decayed material from your tooth and repair the hole with a filling material. This stops the decay from progressing any further, and it also keeps the tooth strong and resistant to damage such as cracks and chips. 

Fillings are also used to repair teeth worn down from nail-biting or tooth grinding. Restoring the tooth with a filling helps preserve the integrity of the tooth and prevents future damage. A filling can ultimately help you avoid losing the tooth. A filling is also a convenient, economical, and efficient process that is typically completed in just one visit.

Some Signs You May Have a Cavity That Requires Filling Include:

  • A constant, dull toothache
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold beverages and foods
  • The appearance of a black or brown spot on the surface of your tooth
  • Sharp pain when biting down on a certain tooth
  • Bad breath that does not go away with brushing

Discuss with Dr. Crawford to See What is the Best Filling for You

Dental fillings are single or combinations of metals, plastics, glass, or other materials used to repair or restore teeth. We may use 3D dental imaging to get a full view of the affected teeth. The location, extent of the decay, cost of filling material, your insurance, and Dr. Crawford’s recommendation helps determine the type of filling best for you. Dental filling materials include gold, silver amalgam, composite, and porcelain.
