Dental Fillings in Atlanta GA

Having a cavity is a painful problem that can cause more harm than just a sore tooth if it is not treated properly. The primary way that most dentists treat cavities is with dental fillings. Dental fillings are a way to restore the tooth to its natural shape. That’s why at 3640 Dental, we offer filling to help protect and preserve our patient’s teeth.

What Are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are a restoration used to replace tooth structure lost due to decay, old restorations, or trauma. Fillings can also be used when teeth weaken and need more support.

They help prevent further damage to the tooth by restoring its shape and strength. There are three filling materials: composite resin, amalgam (a mercury-based material), and glass ionomer cement (resin with added fluoride).

What Do They Do?

Dental fillings are designed to help protect the tooth from further decay and damage. They do this by filling in the gaps created by damage to the teeth. Depending on the type and severity of the damage, we may use different filling materials, or you may require more than one filling.

Fillings are a fast and easy way to protect your teeth from further damage and give you your smile back after you’ve had damage to your teeth.

How Are Fillings Put in?

The dentist will prepare your tooth by removing any decayed or damaged areas; then, a mold is placed over the prepared area of your tooth that requires filling. The material for the filling gets injected into this temporary mold using a special tool called an “injection needle” until it fills up all gaps in the teeth and hardens.

Finally, they remove the excess resin with another instrument so that you can brush your teeth normally without feeling anything unusual on them!
