Direct fillings are able to be accomplished in one appointment with no need for a return visit for further work.

Composite Fillings

A composite resin filling, also referred to as white filling,is used to fill in a hole left in a tooth as a result of a cavity.

Your dentist will clean all decay from the tooth, apply a bonding adhesive and fill the inside of the hole left by the cavity with thin layers of composite resin. The dentist will then hold a specialized light over the tooth to cure (harden) each layer and eventually shape the filling to fit the tooth allowing it to feel natural and blend with the rest of your teeth.

Glass Ionomer Filling

Less often, a glass ionomer material may be used as a filling. However, any filling consisting of glass ionomer is used only in teeth which you do not typically bite down hard with. More modern forms of this type of filling may be stronger and last longer. Research is underway to evaluate the effectiveness and durability.

Porcelain Fillings

Porcelain, the most common choice of dental ceramic used by dentists, are durable, yet somewhat brittle, and blend easily with natural teeth. Porcelain and metal can be combined to make a strong, tooth-colored crown.
