What is a dental filling?
A dental filling is one of the options we offer at Alaska Dental Arts to restore your smile after it has suffered from tooth decay or damage. If a tooth has experienced minor to moderate decay, your dentist may recommend a dental filling in Juneau, Alaska, to restore the tooth’s structure and health. After removing the decay from the tooth, our team will clean the tooth and fill it with the filling material. After shaping the filling to comfortably and aesthetically fit your tooth, we harden the dental filling for a lasting restoration.
Do I need a dental filling?
Our knowledgeable dental team may recommend a dental filling if your tooth requires repair but the damage is not extensive enough to require a dental crown. Fillings are one of the most conservative restorations we offer at our office, and they can usually be completed in just one comfortable visit to our dental practice. We offer both amalgam (silver) and composite (white) fillings at our office to accommodate all of your desires and needs.
