If a tooth or multiple teeth have tiny fractures, damage, or decay, you need a dental filling. Olympia Hills Family Dental has many years of experience treating patients and both Dr. Hafen and Dr. Gonzalez aim to protect and preserve your natural smile by promoting good dental hygiene in the home. When a cavity cannot be prevented, we offer tooth-colored dental fillings.
What Kind of Fillings Do We Use?
At Olympia Hills Family Dental, we aim to give you the best, healthiest looking smile possible. This is why we use an ultra-modern bonding material that can be chemically matched to the color of your surrounding teeth to make the filling itself appear nearly invisible. Research has shown that our bonding material is almost as strong as a natural non-cavity tooth, whereas a silver filling is only 40-50% as strong.
What are the Benefits of Our Fillings?
- Beautiful in appearance
- Completed in a single visit
- Stronger than a silver filling
- No filling leaks
- Less chance of tooth cracking
While there are a number of benefits to fillings, we recommend that all patients still maintain good dental hygiene.
How Do We Fill in Cavities?
We will place a bonding adhesive on the affected tooth, after having cleaned out any infection or buildup. The bonding procedure can reshape a tooth, fill-in a chipped or cracked area or contour a misaligned tooth to balance it out.
Fillings are a fast, practical and cost-effective solution to damage and decay, that can be performed in a single visit.
