Today, we invite you to explore the realm of dental fillings — an integral aspect of maintaining optimal oral health.

Understanding Dental Fillings
Dental fillings play a crucial role in dental restoration, serving as a means to address decay or damage within a tooth. Rather than merely addressing cosmetic concerns, fillings serve to restore the structural integrity and functionality of the affected tooth, facilitating comfortable chewing, speaking and smiling.

Types of Fillings
In the realm of dental fillings, advancements in materials have afforded patients a range of options to suit their preferences and requirements. Options include:

  • Composite Fillings: Composed of a mixture of resin and fine glass particles, composite fillings blend in with your natural teeth. Additionally, they are free of mercury, making them a safer choice for your health.
  • Ceramic Fillings: Ceramic fillings, crafted to match the natural shade of your teeth, offer both aesthetic appeal and durability. Made from porcelain or other ceramics, these fillings provide a natural-looking restoration that withstands the rigors of daily use.

The Filling Process
When undergoing a filling procedure at Shores Family Dentistry, you can expect a meticulous and personalized approach by Dr. Sara Megna and Dr. Brooke Kittell designed to ensure your comfort and satisfaction. The process typically involves:

  1. Assessment: A thorough oral exam allows us to determine how much damage there is, guiding our treatment plan.
  2. Preparation: Prior to filling placement, the affected tooth is prepared by removing decayed or damaged tissue and ensuring a clean surface for restoration.
  3. Filling Placement: Using the selected filling material, we meticulously restore the tooth’s structure and function, customizing the shape and contour to achieve optimal results.
  4. Polishing: The final step involves polishing the filling to create a smooth surface that seamlessly integrates with your natural teeth.
