A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. In this process, a DentFirst dentist removes the decayed area, cleans it, and then fills it with a filling material. This process can also be effective in repairing broken or cracked teeth, or those that become worn down due to misuse like nail-biting or tooth-grinding. Fillings can be made of gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, plastic and glass materials called composite resin fillings that can match the natural color of the tooth. Not only can DentFirst put in new fillings, our experienced dental team can also repair or replace older fillings.
