Understanding Dental Fillings

Understanding Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma, restoring their natural function and appearance. Whether you're experiencing a toothache or have just been informed you have a cavity, our dental filling procedures are designed with your health and comfort in mind.

The Dental Filling Process

The process of receiving a dental filling at Layton Family Dental involves several key steps:

  • Preparation: Dr. Layton will begin by numbing the affected area to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
  • Decay Removal: Any decay or damaged tooth material will be carefully removed.
  • Tooth Restoration: The cavity will then be filled with a tooth-colored composite resin that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth.
  • Finishing Touches: The filling is shaped and polished to match the contours of your tooth, restoring your smile to its natural look and function.

Why Choose Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings offer several benefits over traditional metal fillings:

  • Aesthetics: They blend in with your natural teeth, maintaining the beauty of your smile.
  • Durability: Made to withstand the forces of chewing, they provide a long-lasting solution.
  • Health: By bonding directly to your tooth, they help to restore the majority of the tooth's original strength.
