Teeth that are affected by decay, cracks, chips, spaces, or fractures can often be treated with a filling. The affected portion of the tooth is removed and filled with a strong, durable, yet safe material. Composite or tooth-colored fillings are often used to closely match the color of existing teeth for esthetics. Silver amalgam is also a highly durable and strong filling that may be an option for less visible areas of your smile.
There are many new and advanced types of filling materials available today. Make an appointment with Dr. Powell will discuss with you the best options for restoring your teeth.
