Fillings are the number one procedure in dentistry. It is hard to find an adult that does not have a filling.
For a small or medium sized cavity, we recommend the use of direct filling. A tooth colored composite material is applied directly to the tooth, usually in a one-appointment procedure. Fillings are the recommended treatment for cavities, which are the byproduct of tooth decay. Cavities come in many different sizes and shapes and can affect people of all ages. With time, cavities can reoccur around existing fillings or restorations.
