If you have questions about dental fillings and the ways they can help your smile and oral health, then our dentist, Dr. Choe, is happy to help you find the answers you’re looking for. To do so, he would like to provide answers to commonly asked questions about dental fillings. Those questions are:
Q: What types of dental fillings are there?
A: There are many options available when it comes to dental fillings, but the most commonly used restorations are amalgam and composite fillings. Amalgam fillings are made of a variety of metals (which makes them dark in color), and composite fillings are made of dental resin (which makes them tooth colored).
Q: How do I know which treatment is right for me?
A: Your dentist will help you decide which filling is best for you and your smile.
Q: What are the steps of placing a dental filling?
A: Your dentist will numb the mouth, remove the decayed portion of the tooth, clean the tooth, place the filling, shape the filling and then harden the filling.
