Scott Ellard Dentistry can provide you with a dental filling to restore your tooth to normal function and shape after it has been damaged by a cavity. There are a number of different materials available for your fillings, including gold, silver, composite (tooth-colored plastic), and porcelain.

Composite fillings are rapidly gaining popularity especially over the traditional metal filings. Our dentist will work with you to determine which type of filling is most appropriate for you.

Restore Your Teeth

A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if a tooth has been damaged by decay (for example, if it has a cavity) or suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function, and return your smile to good health. If your tooth is too severely damaged you may need a dental crown or other treatment to restore your oral health.

The process for placing a dental filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth, then clean it to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the area with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened by our dentist for a lasting restoration.
