Our dentists at Elliott Dental Studio can help correct your smile with bonded fillings. A bonded filling blends in naturally with your teeth.
Why do I need a filling?
When a cavity (a hole) has formed on the tooth surface, you will need a filling to stop the tooth decay. Without treatment, the cavity may get worse or lead to more severe problems, such as bone loss. You might also need a filling if a tooth has cracked or has been damaged.
What is a bonded filling?
A bonded filling is appropriate when the cavity to be filled is small and the area is not exposed to a lot of force in the mouth.
A bonded filling may not be your best option if the cavity is large or if it is on a molar. Our dentists will recommend what filling is best for your smile.
What can I expect after I receive a filling?
You shouldn't notice any difference after the filling is placed on the tooth. You will be able to eat and drink normally once the local anesthetic has worn off. If you do notice any discomfort or sensitivity, please contact our office.
