Fill in Damage and Restore Your Smile

Dr. Derek Evans offers dental fillings to repair your teeth after developing a cavity or sustaining minor tooth damage. Fillings work to literally “fill in” the areas of your damaged tooth to restore its structure and strength.

In short, a dental filling repairs minor to moderate tooth damage. In this situation, we may recommend a filling a damaged, decayed (for example, if it has a cavity), fractured or chipped tooth. The dental filling restores the tooth to its original structure and function and return your smile to good health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite fillings.

A Dental filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. First, our dentists will first remove the damaged portion of the tooth, then clean it to remove all traces of decay. Afterward, we fill the area with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, our dentists harden the filling for a lasting restoration.

If one of your teeth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice to restore your oral health and function. Call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and schedule your next appointment with our team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
