When a patient has a decayed, damaged, or cavity infected tooth, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. At Woodland Hills Family Dentistry, our dentists provide modern, white dental fillings that can be matched to the shade of your natural teeth.
A dental filling is a common restoration treatment used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if your tooth has been damaged by tooth decay (for example, if your tooth has a cavity), or if your tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function and to return your smile to optimal health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: traditional, silver colored amalgam fillings and tooth-colored composite fillings. Our dentists will work with you to help you choose the right filling material for your smile.
The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentist will first gently remove the decayed and damaged portion of your tooth, and then clean the tooth to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the tooth with the selected filling material, and shape it to match the shape of your tooth. Finally, the filling is hardened to create a lasting restoration.
Our Woodland Hills Family Dentistry team is full of friendly faces that are here to help you feel relaxed and comfortable during your visit. We have been providing quality dental care for the Woodland Hills and surrounding areas for over 35 years, so you can trust us to care for your family’s oral health.
