When a cavity or hole in a tooth is detected by your dentist it will need to be repaired. Depending on the size and location of the cavity one possible treatment method is a tooth filling. There are two options that blend long-lasting strength and attractiveness.
WHAT IS COMPOSITE TOOTH FILLING?
The composite resin dental filling provides durable fillings for small to medium sized cavities and is attractive in both hidden and visible areas.
Glass ionomer is another material that may be used in a filling and will mimic natural tooth color and may be used in areas of the root or gumline.
Your dentist at Fortson Dentistry will choose the best and most attractive option to preserve your dental health and sparkling smile.
HOW LONG DOES TOOTH FILLING TAKE?
Most fillings can be completed in a single appointment and typically take between 15 minutes to one hour. However, depending on how many fillings, and the type of fillings, this can vary.
HOW MUCH DOES TOOTH FILLING COST?
There are a number of variables that can impact the cost of a dental filling. For a single tooth surface, you’ll pay much less than you would for three teeth for example. Another dependency is the type of filling. Finally, the cost of a tooth filling will be different based upon whether you have insurance or not.
