Dental Health & Tooth Fillings
Dental fillings are used to treat one of the most common forms of tooth decay, a cavities.
Fillings can also be the recommended treatment to repair chipped, broken, or cracked teeth and teeth that have been worn down from things like biting your nails or grinding your teeth.
Sacramento family dentist Dr. Arben Celaj offers several dental filling options.
Dental Fillings Repair Tooth Decay
When you come into our Sacramento dental office, the first thing you’ll do is undergo an exam with the doctor. From this exam, Dr. Celaj will determine what type of filling material is best – and offer you all available options.
He will then remove the decayed portion of the tooth, and fill in the tooth structure with the best dental filling solution for your particular type of decay.
This depends on a variety of factors such as on what particular tooth (or teeth) you have decay, how bad it is, and what type of appearance you are wanting to achieve.
What Are Dental Fillings Made Of?
Today, several dental filling materials are available to patients.
By far the most popular and often the most highly recommended by Dr. Celaj are tooth-colored composite fillings like you see above in the before & after picture.
Dental fillings also come in:
- Silver Amalgam (these are the old mercury silver fillings, that while cheaper in cost are far inferior to more modern filling materials)
- Tooth-Colored Composite
