You Can Achieve Lasting Repairs With Our Dental Fillings

At the practice of Nils F. Sandstrom, DDS, we provide dental fillings to repair damage to your teeth caused by cavities, fractures or everyday wear. However, dental fillings can only repair minor or moderate deterioration; extensively compromised teeth may require a dental crown or even a complete replacement. Fillings are designed to improve your tooth’s structure, function and appearance and with proper oral hygiene practices, can last for many years to come.

Having a dental filling placed has lasting affects that are proven to have a positive impact on your oral health as they can help protect your tooth from the advancement of dental decay and discomfort. Also, dental fillings can be made with either amalgam or composite materials. Each material has unique benefits and are recommended bases on your specific dental needs. Composite (white) fillings, though, are often preferred over amalgam (metal) fillings because they carefully match the natural color of your tooth.

In just one visit, we remove the compromised portion of your tooth, clean the tooth to remove any remnants of decay and place your dental filling. The filling is shaped to fit perfectly in the grooves of your tooth and is hardened to ensure its longevity. If you would like to repair your tooth and eliminate any cavities and discomfort, dental fillings may be right for you.
