What are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are restorative materials used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma. They are commonly made of composite resin, porcelain, or amalgam, and they are placed in the cavities created by decay or fractures to restore the tooth’s function, integrity, and appearance. Dental fillings help prevent further decay by sealing off the affected area and restoring the tooth’s natural shape and strength. At Legacy Dental Team, we offer high-quality dental fillings to help our patients maintain healthy and beautiful smiles.

When Are Filling Services Needed?

Filling services are needed when teeth have cavities caused by decay or fractures. Cavities create holes or gaps in the tooth enamel, allowing bacteria to enter and cause further damage if left untreated. Additionally, teeth may require fillings to repair minor chips or cracks that compromise their structure. If you experience tooth sensitivity, pain when biting down, or notice visible pits or holes in your teeth, it’s essential to seek dental attention promptly. Our team at Legacy Dental Team recommends regular dental check-ups to detect and address any cavities or damage early, helping to prevent the need for more extensive treatment in the future.
