Dental Fillings Brigham City
Dental fillings are used to restore damage to a tooth when it has become decayed. Fillings are the composite material that is used to seal the area within a tooth where the decay was removed. It is important to close off the space where bacteria enters and leads to additional decay. Composite material is the most common filling material as it blends well with the coloring of the rest of your teeth. We do provide amalgam, gold, and porcelain material options for fillings.
What is the Best Filling Material?
It is important to discuss filling material with Dr. Jenson to determine which filling material is the perfect one for your smile. Some patients have allergies to certain materials, which is why it is important to discuss your complete health history before receiving treatment.
What is the Procedure for a Filling?
Dental fillings normally do not take a long amount of time to complete. Based on the severity of decay, it can take a few minutes or over an hour. Most dental fillings are easy to repair as long as you do not have a lot of cavities that need to be filled.
