Fillings

Fillings

Fillings are done to remove decay, and replace the affected tooth structure. It is called a filling because new a material fills the hole that the decay left. Today most teeth are treated with bonded tooth colored composite resin fillings. Caught early enough, cavities can be treated easily and painlessly. If not treated decay can lead to tooth pain and/or infection, and the tooth would need root canal treatment or extraction.At Green Valley Dentistry we offer our patients both options of either tooth-colored fillings or the traditional silver fillings.
