NATURAL LOOKING, LONG LASTING FILLINGS
Dental Fillings, Braintree MA
For hundreds of years, dental fillings have been used to restore teeth. Dental fillings are placed in teeth where a dentist has had to remove tooth structure due to decay or fracture. In recent years filling materials have been substantially improved by many technological advancements. Although silver amalgam was the dominant choice years ago, today we have several other preferred options for tooth restoration including tooth colored composite filling materials.
- Prevent further damage to oral health
- Prevent gum disease
- Keep natural teeth for longer
- Natural looking color for fillings that blend in with the rest of your mouth
At Allen Dental Associates, we are dedicated to providing painless and effective dental fillings. Our highly trained professionals use the most advanced techniques and technology to repair your decayed or fractured teeth and help you keep your natural smile for longer. Your dental fillings with us will be:
- Effective against further decay or damage
In order to ensure the effectiveness of your dental fillings, the damaged tooth structure requires removal before the filling is installed. Once the unhealthy structure is removed, the healthy portion of the tooth remains and the filling material is inserted to match the shape and color of the natural tooth.
Fillings are one of the most common dental procedures in the world.
