What Are Dental Fillings?

Fillings are one of the several types of treatments you can receive for broken or decayed teeth. After removing any decay, we use various materials to fill in the damaged parts of the tooth and recreate its natural shape. These materials range from composite, amalgam, and metal. 

This dental treatment improves your chewing and biting functions, and it’s less invasive than procedures like root canals or tooth extractions. Cavity fillings can last five to 12 years, depending on the type of filling material.

How To Tell if You Need a Filling

Signs that you might need fillings include:

  • Toothaches
  • Jagged or rough-shaped teeth
  • Sensitivity when eating or brushing
  • Floss getting caught on sharp edges of teeth
  • Visible hole in the tooth

A broken or uneven tooth can make it difficult to chew or eat certain types of food, eventually affecting your diet and overall health. With fillings, your dentist can rebuild your damaged tooth, allowing you to eat and drink without issues.

Cavities, which develop because of tooth decay, are often the reason dental patients need fillings. Your mouth contains billions of bacteria that feed on the food particles in your mouth, producing an acid that can cause tooth damage.

You can avoid oral health issues from the buildup of bacteria, food particles, and plaque by brushing and flossing your teeth each day and going to your dentist for regular checkups.

Types of Dental Fillings

The type of dental filling your dentist recommends depends on the extent of the tooth damage, the placement of the tooth, and the location of the cavity. 

Dental filling materials include the following:

  • Composite – Composite fillings are the same color as teeth, allowing them to blend with your smile naturally. They are most suitable for mild cavities in locations that do not involve heavy chewing.
  • Amalgam – One of the most common and least expensive types of fillings besides composite, dental amalgams have a metallic appearance and work well for restoring molars.
  • Metal – Gold and silver fillings are another option for dental fillings. Gold fillings can be expensive, but could last you 10 to 15 years.
  • Porcelain inlays or onlays – Porcelain fillings are generally for more extensive tooth reconstruction.

This dentist is so good that I choose to go here despite being out of my insurance network. I had previously gone to another dentist in Cherry creek who kept performing expensive treatments that didn’t help. After my first visit at midtown dental, they resolved my issue. Their staff is incredibly kind, patient, and transparent.

We've been going to Midtown Dental for close to 10 years. Dr. T and his team are our favorites! Having two young girls who were not particularly excited about going to the dentist, they were made to feel incredibly comfortable and now actually look forward to going to the dentist!!! Thanks Midtown Dental!

I have been going to Midtown Dental for about 8 years. I always love the dental hygienists. My mom was a hygienist so I have been spoiled my whole life with a great hygienist (totally bias). I love the hygienists at Midtown. I had a great cleaning today. They use the ultrasonic water to get the plaque off which is super comfortable. They are thorough. This is a down-to-earth place which is super friendly and professional staff. Covid Protocols are in place, which made me feel comfortable. Insurance was billed and my whole experience was smooth.

The hygienists are always gentle and ensure you feel comfortable throughout the cleanings. Dr. T is absolutely fantastic. He is thorough, does a great job making himself available or any questions, and he has a great sense of humor. I cannot recommend this dental office highly enough.
