A dental filling is likely appropriate if you have a small or medium-sized cavity. If you have a larger area of decay, you will require a bigger restoration, such as a dental crown. If the decay has spread to the soft pulp inside your tooth, you may require root canal therapy. Fortunately, when we place dental fillings early, we can prevent the need for these more time-consuming and extensive procedures. We typically use our state-of-the-art x-rays to evaluate the extent of your decay and to determine your need for a filling.
Tooth-colored composite fillings offer both cosmetic and practical advantages over metal fillings. Most obviously, they look more natural and attractive.
