Dental Fillings

Dental filling is a type of restorative dentistry treatment used to repair minor tooth fractures, cavities, decay or otherwise damaged surfaces of the teeth. The area affected will be removed and then filled with a composite filling to even out tooth surfaces to improve biting, chewing and overall oral health. Dr. Borchers is well-versed in a variety of dental filling materials, including composite, porcelain, silver amalgam and CEREC. Some of the reasons patients choose to receive dental fillings include:

  • Repair chipped teeth
  • Restore close space between two teeth
  • Repair decayed and worn teeth
  • Cosmetic enhancement

    What to expect

    A dental filling procedure generally requires only one appointment. The patient can expect the doctor to remove any decayed areas and clean teeth thoroughly before starting the filling treatment. Once this step is complete, filling of choice is placed onto the tooth, and shaped & polished to match original shape and function. In some cases, patients will experience tooth pain after procedure, but will stop after a short time. Patient will receive aftercare instructions to help aid the life of the filling.
