Dental Fillings An Overview
Tooth decay is a growing health epidemic affecting both children and adults.
Dental fillings are the most conservative treatment option for restoring a decayed or damaged tooth. Dental fillings restore the structure of the tooth and seal out future decay. Dr. Overholtzer will work with you to choose the type of dental filling that is most suitable for your oral health needs and cosmetic goals.
A comprehensive oral health exam and digital x-rays will allow Dr. Overholtzer to determine which treatment option will best preserve your natural tooth. Treatment for tooth decay may vary depending on the extent of the decay or damage and the location of the tooth. For more advanced decay, an inlay or onlay may be recommended to help stabilize the tooth structure and provide a durable, aesthetically pleasing result.
High-Quality Dental Fillings
Cosmetic porcelain dental fillings can be colored to match the decayed tooth. White dental fillings provide an end result that is both aesthetically seamless and highly durable. Patients with existing metal dental fillings may consider having their fillings replaced with white ceramic fillings for a more natural look.
