Dental Fillings

Dental Fillings

I’m sure most people can vouch for the fact that they have most likely at one point in their life or another. With that being said, dental fillings are one of the most common reasons for a patient to walk through the doors of a dental office, and Koren Family Dental is no different. Dr. Koren and his team of dental hygienists are very equipped and experienced in dental fillings, so you can expect a virtually pain-free and effective filling procedure to be done at out Bridgewater, Raritan, Sommerville, Branchburg, NJ, office.

Why Do I Need a Dental Filling?

Many believe that dental fillings are only for tooth decay, otherwise known as cavities, but the truth of the matter is that that can also be used to remedy:

  • Worn down teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Closing a space in between two teeth

What Material is Best for Me?

Of course, depending on your circumstances, needs, or budget, you may need a different option other than composite resin or ceramic that do yield the most natural results. Other options include amalgam, silver, or gold filling. It is important to note that each material has their advantages and disadvantages.

How Long Will My Dental Filling Last?

Similar to most other dental restorations, dental fillings do routinely have to be replaced. While dental fillings are made to be extremely durable, they are unfortunately no permanent. With the right care and good oral hygiene, you can have a beautiful smile for a long time.

If you have more questions about dental fillings or if you think you may need one, don’t hesitate to give our office a call or send in an email to schedule an appointment.
