Greenwood Village Dental Fillings

Protect your teeth and prevent decay

Restore tooth structure, restore your health.

Strong teeth are vital to good health. But over time, the function, integrity, and form of a tooth’s structure can decay. Dental fillings repair cavities, cracked or broken teeth, and teeth worn down by misuse.

Whether you have a nail-biting habit that wears down your teeth, a painful cavity behind one of your canines, or a chipped tooth from an accident, we’re here to help. Plus, we offer a 5-year warranty on our dental fillings.

When is a dental filling necessary?

The tell-tale signs of tooth decay—pain or sensitivity around the affected area—alerts you and your dentist to a cavity, a cracked tooth, or over-worn teeth. To diagnose a cavity, we’ll perform a series of tests, including (but not limited to):

  • Visual assessment
  • Probing/palpation
  • X-rays

These tests will lead to a diagnosis and treatment plan. For very small cavities, we may simply recommend a wait-and-see approach. If the cavity is large and painful or located in a hard-to-reach area, a filling is often recommended.

Treating a cavity with a filling involves removing decayed tooth structure, followed by a cavity filling that “fills” the hole in your teeth, protecting your tooth from further decay.

What kind of fillings are there?

At our office, we offer white fillings. White fillings are natural-looking and durable. The two main types of white fillings are composite resin and porcelain.
  • NComposite fillings are made with composite resin, easily match teeth color, and last about three to 10 years.
  • NPorcelain fillings look the most like natural teeth, are resistant to staining, and last 15 to 20 years.

4. Finally, your dentist will polish the filling, ensuring that it’s smooth and properly shaped. A bite test will be conducted to make sure the new filling hits the opposing teeth correctly.

How can I prevent cavities?

Here are proactive steps you can take for your personal dental health:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes at a time
  • Floss at least once a day
  • Eat a healthy diet, limiting sugary and acidic foods
  • Visit your dentist every 6 months for routine dental cleanings and exams
Do dental fillings hurt?
Our team will ensure you are numb and comfortable during the procedure. After the filling, it may take a few hours before the numbness wears off.
What is the difference between a filling and a root canal?
Filling removes decayed tissue in the tooth while the tissue is still living. A root canal removes the living root of the tooth, leaving behind a “dead” tooth. Root canals are much more invasive and more costly.
