At Dr. Joel D. Singer, DMD, we offer tooth-colored dental fillings to repair your damaged teeth and improve your smile. Unlike silver fillings, tooth-colored restorations are made from materials that match the color of your natural teeth and require less removal of your natural tooth structure.
Dental fillings are used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage caused by decay or if it has suffered a minor fracture or chipping. For example, if your tooth has a cavity we may recommend a filling. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function, and promote good oral health. Otherwise, a damaged or decayed tooth that is left untreated can lead to more serious problems, such as tooth loss.
In just one visit to our office we can place a filling and restore the health of your tooth. Our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth, then clean it to remove all traces of decay. Next, the area will be filled with material and shaped to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened for a durable and lasting restoration.
If one of your teeth has decay or is damaged, a dental filling may be an optimal solution for restoring your oral health and function.
