What is a Dental Filling?

A dental filling is considered an appliance that allows you to keep your tooth despite having a cavity. Cavities occur when the enamel is degraded, and there is a pit in your tooth. The problem with dental cavities is that they can lead to further degradation of the tissue, which results in a lot of other issues. Dental fillings are designed to fit in the cavity and restore the tooth’s health so that the patient can resume normal activities.

How Are Dental Filling Procedures Performed?

The way a dental filling is put in the tooth can vary based on the filling. The first step is for the dentist to diagnose the cavity. Depending on the size of the cavity, there are different types of fillings. Small cavities may only require resin while larger cavities may need to have an impression taken so a lab can fabricate a filling to fit in the cavity effectively. The dentist will cement the filling into place, to keep it in place as long as possible. Dental fillings are very easy to get at Paul Graf’s office in Spring, TX, so give us a call today.
