Fillings

We use tooth colored material to restore cavities.


For deep cavity, if the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication will be applied for added protection. The composite filling is placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function.

Sensitivity to hot and cold can sometimes occur after the fillings are done, it will subside with time.

 Good oral hygiene, proper diet, and regular dental visits will aid in the care of your new fillings.

Crowns
