Fillings - Bright Valley Dental


What Are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are restorative materials used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay or cavities. This common dental procedure involves removing the decayed portion of the tooth and filling the void with a durable material to restore both function and aesthetics.

Types of Dental Fillings

What Should I Expect During My Appointment?

Our Elgin dentist starts your appointment by numbing around the tooth that needs filling. The procedure uses a local anesthetic; the filling will be comfortable and will not cause you any pain. Next, the decayed part of the tooth is removed using special tools, and cleaned to make sure no bacteria remains. After that, the tooth is filled with material, which will result in a completely natural looking tooth.

Benefits of Dental Fillings

Alternatives to Dental Fillings

While dental fillings are a common and effective solution, alternative treatments may include dental crowns for more extensive damage, inlays/onlays, or, in some cases, root canal therapy. Our Elgin dental team will assess your specific situation and recommend the most suitable treatment for optimal oral health.
