Fillings

 

Dental Fillings are a commonly performed dental restoration.

When would I need a Dental Filling?

Our Hillsboro office performs dental fillings when a tooth has been affected by decay and a cavity is present. With regular dental checkups, we hope to catch cavities when they are small and easy to repair. Once a cavity is present, it will continue to worsen. You should never ignore a cavity.

How is a Dental Filling performed?

After Dr. Parent has cleaned and taken care of the decayed portion of the tooth, she then needs to fill the cavity left behind. To do this, Dr. Parent uses a composite of ceramic mixed with resin to fill in this cavity. This material is strong and durable, it will last for several years, but will need to be replaced eventually, fillings are susceptible to discoloration through staining.
