What are dental fillings?

Dental fillings are a type of dental restoration used to repair damage and decay to your tooth enamel. They are used by Dr. John Wiltz to restore the integrity of your natural tooth structure as well as the overall health and appearance of your smile. After removing the decay from your tooth’s surface, we will sculpt the filling directly onto your tooth until it fits exactly with the curves and line of your smile. At Irish Road Dental, we offer dental fillings to ensure your smile lasts for a lifetime.

What types of dental fillings are there?

There are two different types of dental fillings in Davison, Michigan, white fillings and amalgam fillings. White fillings are also known as tooth-colored or composite fillings. They are made from a strong, durable plastic that can be matched to the exact color of your tooth. Amalgam fillings are made from a mixture of metals. Amalgam is considered a more cost-effective option. You will work with your knowledgeable dentist to determine which type of filling best suits your needs. If you see visible spots on your teeth or have a toothache, a dental filling may be right for you. To learn more, please give our dental office a call. We would be happy to help you schedule a tour for you and your family.
