Most people need at least one tooth restored/filled in their lifetime. Dental fillings are most commonly used to treat cavities, but they’re also used to repair cracked or broken teeth, or teeth that have been worn down over time.

Most dental filling procedures feature the following: 

  • Topical anesthetic to numb the area of treatment
  • Decay removal from the affected teeth 
  • Tooth restored using a composite or amalgam filling
  • Bite check to make sure your teeth align comfortably

The team at Millington Family Dentistry will ensure you are comfortable before, during, and after your procedure, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
