When Would I Need a Dental Filling?April 30, 2022 3:40 am
A tooth-colored dental filling can repair a small chip, fortify a weakened area of a tooth, or fix a cavity, which is a hole in a tooth caused by decay. Fillings are usually made of tooth-colored composite resin to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
The process to get a filling usually takes less than an hour. Depending on the location of where the filling will be on your tooth, you may or may not need desensitization. We don’t want the procedure to cause you pain so will offer numbing medication if the procedure may cause you discomfort.
