Dental fillings can be used to protect a tooth with a dental cavity. The decayed part of the tooth is removed and the cavity is filled back in to keep out the bacteria that can cause infections. Dental fillings can also be used to fix cracked, or broken teeth!
You want to consider getting a filling if you:
There are several different kinds of fillings. Years ago fillings were made of precious metals, as these metals were able to last for years. There are many newer options now including porcelain, resin compositions and glass ionomer cement, although gold and silver amalgam fillings are also still in use. Our knowledgeable local dentist, in Aurora, CO, can help you decide on which filling is right for you.
