If your teeth sustain minor damage from cavities or cracking, a dental filling might be the solution for you. Fillings are typically recommended to repair minor to moderate tooth damage, and they work to restore the tooth to its original structure and function so that you can once again enjoy a healthy smile. Dental fillings may be made from silver amalgam or from a tooth-colored composite material. Composite fillings are more common, as they blend in with your teeth to give you a more natural-looking final result.
Dr. Pamela Abeyta can complete your dental filling in just one appointment at Rim Point Dental. We will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth and thoroughly clean it to remove all traces of decay. Our dentist will then place the filling material into the tooth and shape it to match the natural contours of the tooth. The material will then be hardened and polished to complete your treatment. We will provide you with a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area and ensure your comfort while you receive your filling.
