Fillings

Dental fillings are used when a cavity needs to be treated. Dr. Nathan Cejka will first remove the decayed part of your tooth and then fill the area back in! Fillings may also be used to restore worn down, cracked or broken teeth.

How do I know if I need a filling?

  • Visible cracks or chips in a tooth
  • Visible holes or dark spots on teeth
  • A dull ache or pain that never seems to subside
  • Sensitivity to heat and cold
  • Sharp pain when biting down on the affected tooth

In the past, fillings were comprised of precious metals because they were able to withstand years of use. Gold and silver amalgam fillings are still available today, but there are also some new options, which include porcelain, tooth-colored resin composites, and glass ionomer cement. Dr. Cejka can recommend the filling type that would be best for you based on the amount of restoration your tooth needs, the location of the filling, and your own personal preferences.

Not all filling materials are created equal. We offer the most modern filling technologies available up to and including digitally designed and milled porcelain fillings that can last years longer than composite fillings. Come on in and we will evaluate your teeth for the possibility of receiving these beautiful, long lasting fillings.

What will happen during my procedure?

  • A local anesthetic will numb the area around the tooth.
  • A drill or a laser will be used to remove the damaged part of the tooth.
  • Once all the decay has been removed, Dr. Cejka will thoroughly clean the cavity to remove bacteria.
  • The filling material is then applied in multiple layers - special light that hardens each layer is applied.
  • Lastly, the material will be shaped, trimmed and thoroughly polished.

If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms and think you may need a filling, please call our office to set up an appointment!
