If you have a decayed tooth, we can restore it back to its normal shape and function with a filling. Dr. Graham will carefully examine your tooth and discuss your options before beginning the filling procedure.
If a filling is required, Dr. Megan Graham will first remove the decayed tooth material, then clean the affected area and fill the cleaned-out cavity with a filling material. This filling will help prevent further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria might enter.
Fillings may include gold, porcelain or composite material. Newer dental fillings include ceramic and plastic compounds that mimic the appearance of natural teeth. These compounds, often called composite resins, are typically used on the front teeth where a natural appearance is important.
