Fillings

Get rid of that cavity that is causing you constant pain.

Call Columbia Dental Care & Associates to get a treatment plan in place, regardless of the severity of the decay. If the tooth is still structurally sound and a filling is the best course of treatment, the decayed portion of the tooth will be removed and filled with a composite resin material or a traditional silver amalgam material. Teeth that have been cracked, broken or worn from misuse (such as from nail-biting or grinding) can also be filled.

Materials such as gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, or glass materials called composite resin fillings,are used to create fillings.


Caring for your fillings

Fillings are easily maintained by following good oral hygiene habits. Schedule regular cleanings, brush with a toothpaste containing fluoride and floss at least once a day. If you suspect a filling might be loose or falling apart, schedule an X-ray to assess the situation. Symptoms of a cracked filling;

  • a tooth is extremely sensitive,
  • a tooth has developed a sharp edge,
  • a noticeable crack can be seen in the filling,
  • a piece is missing from the filling or you have pieces of filling in your mouth when you wake up in the morning.
