If our Holland dentist discovers a cavity, he’ll need to drill out the decayed tooth matter and restore the tooth with a dental filling.
Fillings can be made out of composite resin or amalgam. The type of tooth filling you choose will depend on your insurance, budget, and whether the tooth is visible when you smile or talk.
Many of our patients choose composite fillings for front teeth because they match the color of their natural tooth enamel.
Benefits Of Tooth Fillings
While amalgam fillings are typically less expensive than white fillings, they are durable enough to use on back teeth. Our dentist can help you decide what type of filling is best for your situation.
A cavity filling will help restore your tooth to its original strength so you can smile with confidence. The sooner we are able to spot a cavity, the smaller the filling will be. This is why it’s so important to schedule an oral examination and teeth cleaning with your dentist at least every 6 months.
