Types of Fillings

The most common reason for dental fillings is to fill a cavity. However, there are other reasons that fillings can be used, such as to repair a cracked, chipped, broken, or misshapen tooth. We use tooth-colored, or "composite" fillings.

The Advantages & Versatility of Tooth Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored composite fillings have been growing in popularity in recent years due to a number of reasons.

Composite fillings can be used for repairing teeth damaged by:

  • Tooth decay
  • Chipped teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Cracks
  • Broken teeth
  • Closing spaces between teeth

Since composite fillings are tooth colored, the color of your filling material can be matched to the color of your teeth. This is especially useful for repairs that are needed to the teeth that can be seen when you smile. It is important to note that tooth colored fillings do not respond to teeth whitening, so you may want to have your teeth whitened prior to restoring your teeth with composite fillings.

The Procedure for Filling Cavities

The procedure for dental fillings usually begins with numbering the area around the tooth that needs the filling. The affected portion of the tooth is removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned of all bacteria and debris. The filling material is placed and then polished to help it look and feel smooth and natural.

If you have a tooth that requires a filling, call (408) 317-7300 to discuss your options.
