Restorative Fillings

A restorative filling is used to replace a missing part of a tooth. Some fillings can be matched to the color of the surrounding teeth, so the restoration looks natural. Fillings are used to repair a tooth that has been broken or chipped and to prevent further breakage and decay.

Types of Restorative Fillings

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are a popular treatment option for patients of all ages. Composite fillings or tooth-colored fillings are often preferred for aesthetic reasons. They blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are restorative dental fillings that can restore strength and function to molars that have suffered from moderate decay. They are indirect fillings, custom-made to fit into or onto the tooth.

Benefits of Restorative Fillings

  • Restorative fillings restore your smile by replacing decayed, broken, or missing parts of the tooth structure.
  • They can preserve your natural bite by restoring your tooth’s shape and structure, allowing you to chew as usual.
  • They can reduce tooth sensitivity.
  • Restorative fillings can prevent further decay. They prevent bacteria from reaching the cavity, which protects your gums and jawbone.
  • Fillings help strengthen weakened teeth.
  • Fillings help restore damaged teeth, keeping the gums and teeth healthy.
