Dental fillings are a time-tested treatment for cavities and have helped save people’s teeth for decades. Advances in filling materials have led many dentists to offer more than just simple metal fillings. At Dental Care 4 U, we provide a wide range of fillings to treat your cavities and help keep your teeth healthy. 

Dental Filling Options Provided at Dental Care 4 U

Fillings work to seal the small holes in your tooth caused by decay. The fillings prevent the decay from spreading further into your tooth. Fillings are an effective method for treating cavities, as untreated cavities can quickly progress into the pulp and nerve tissue inside the tooth. In these cases, a root canal treatment would be needed. 

At Dental Care 4 U, our team can provide various dental fillings, each with its own uses to help protect your teeth from tooth decay. These fillings include: 

  • Metal Fillings: Metal fillings work with different types of metals to achieve a strong, sturdy bond with the tooth’s surface. The most famous type is the classic “silver” filling, which contains alloys from silver, tin, copper, and mercury. These fillings are stable, inexpensive, and safe to use, and there are other metal options, such as gold, that also provide long-lasting effects against cavities. 
  • Tooth-Colored Fillings: Tooth-colored fillings are made with materials that match the tooth’s shade. There are three types of tooth-colored fillings that patients can choose from:
    • Composite Resin: Composite resin is a mixture of plastic and glass, can be matched to your tooth’s specific shade, and requires less prep work for dentists. 
    • Porcelain: Porcelain fillings are ceramic casts that are stronger and more life-like than composite resin. These fillings are highly sought out for their aesthetics and natural feel. 
    • Glass Ionomer: Glass ionomer works with acrylic and glass powders and is translucent. These fillings can blend in with the natural tooth and release small amounts of fluoride to help prevent decay.
