If you develop a cavity or sustain other minor tooth damage, our dentist may recommend restoring your teeth and smile with a dental filling.

What Are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are a minor treatment used to restore your tooth to its original structure and function after it has been damaged by fracturing, chipping or tooth decay. There are two main types of fillings – silver amalgam and tooth-colored composite fillings. While both types of fillings are effective, tooth-colored fillings are increasingly popular due to their natural appearance and versatility.

The Dental Filling Process

Fillings work by “filling in” the damaged portion of your tooth to restore its appearance and strength. A filling can be placed in just one visit to Rockland Pediatric Dental and Orthodontics. First, our dentist will remove decayed and damaged portions of the tooth’s structure. The filling material is then placed and shaped to match the contours of the tooth. Finally, the filling is hardened to provide a lasting restoration.
