A filling is used to repair small defects or cavities in your teeth. These are common treatments that most people have received at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, there is a lot of confusing and misleading information in the popular media and in advertisements surrounding the benefits and risks of different types of fillings. We use a wide variety of different techniques for restoring a tooth, and in most situations several of the different ways would be quite adequate to address a given problem. It is our philosophy to discuss your options with you and to provide sound advice regarding the risks and benefits of each treatment option, so you can make a well educated decision about what treatment you would prefer.
