Tooth Fillings

Cavities are a well-known smile threat, and they will affect many people at least once in their lifetime. The good news is that with the right procedure, the problem can be completely resolved while minimizing changes to your tooth structure! Our approach to restorative dentistry includes treatments with custom dental fillings. Tooth fillings are typically the preferable choice for mild to moderate cavities, and at Central Park Dentistry, we offer a choice of filling materials to suit your individual needs.

Should I Receive A Metal or Composite Filling?

Fillings work because they fill the cavities that tooth decay leaves in your teeth, strengthening the tooth and preventing oral bacteria from infecting more of it. For molars and teeth that are exposed to heavy bite pressure, we may suggest a metal amalgam filling. For more visible front teeth, tooth-colored composite resin may prove a better, more cosmetically appealing choice.

Before moving forward with care, your dentist will closely study the cavity and the tooth in order to see what kind of support you need. If called for, we can recommend that you receive a dental crown, a larger restoration that can protect your tooth structure by surrounding it.
