Dental Fillings in Richmond
If you have any decay in your teeth, your dentist will recommend a filling. Fillings are essential to maintain the health of your teeth as they prevent bacteria from entering the dental pulp so you can avoid a tooth infection.
What Material Are Dental Fillings Made From?
Fillings can be made from metal and amalgam, and while these materials are very strong, their colour is more visible in the mouth. For this reason, most patients prefer composite fillings, which are tooth coloured so they blend in well with your teeth.
What Is the Dental Filling Procedure?
Dental fillings are a common dental procedure that is performed under a local anesthetic. Your dentist will drill a small hole so they can remove the damaged part of the tooth. They will then clean the area and fill the hole with a composite filling.
