Fillings

At some time in your life, you will likely develop a tooth cavity and need a filling to repair it. Modern dentistry offers options that blend long-lasting strength and attractiveness. Some are so perfectly color-matched to your teeth that only your dentist knows you have a filling.

Evaluating the tooth and appropriate filling

After determining your tooth can be successfully repaired with a filling, Dr. Boyajian will evaluate the size of the cavity and location of your tooth to choose the appropriate filling. For cavities located on chewing surfaces in less visible areas of your mouth, a traditional “silver colored” amalgam material may be the best option. For teeth in more visible areas and in front, a “composite” resin tinted to match your tooth color will disguise the filling for a natural look.

Types of tooth fillings

Dental filling options include:

  • Amalgam – the strongest, most durable and least expensive option.
  • Composite resin – durable fillings for small to medium-sized cavities, a little more expensive than amalgam, but more attractive in both hidden and visible areas.
  • Glass or resin “ionomers” – mimic natural tooth color and are used for filling cavities in areas of the root or gum line.
