Dental fillings are a means to “restore” a tooth’s structure back to normal function and shape.

Whether a tooth has a cavity, cracks or holes, worn down tooth structure from nail biting or clenching and grinding, it’s broken, discolored or genetically- defective formed tooth; fillings are a quick and easy way to getting that tooth fixed.

There are several different types of dental filling materials available. At Fox Family Dental we use only the safest and most durable materials in our office.

Tooth colored restorations are the most often utilized and consist of bonding a tooth colored material to your natural tooth.

There are several advantages to these materials:

  • More cost effective
  • Matches your tooth shade
  • Office visit- Quickly completed
  • The filling material is set and secure immediately, so you there are no eating or drinking restrictions
  • Easy to care for
  • Durable
  • Don’t stain

Teeth with fillings still need to be maintained and cared for as natural teeth. Brushing and flossing daily along with recommended dental check-ups will help prevent from further issues.
