Dental fillings are used to repair teeth that have experienced minor to moderate damage because of decay or other damaging factors, such as chipping or fracturing. In order to restore the tooth’s health and strength, our dentists use a filling to replace the damaged part of the tooth. Drs. Mark and Christen Simpson first remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth and then thoroughly clean the tooth. The filling is then placed to return the tooth to optimal shape, structure, and strength. In most cases, it requires only one or two visits to our office to complete a dental filling in Charleston, West Virginia.
There are many types of dental filling materials available. Having an in-house laboratory allows us at Simpson Dental Associates to be able to provide the full range of choices to our patients, from ceramic (porcelain) tooth-colored restorations to gold, the most durable. With the in-house lab, we are able to provide the restorations in a more timely and precise manner. Also, we are able to control the materials that are used in our restorations so that only the highest quality materials go into any restoration we provide. We offer composite fillings as well, which are made of tooth-colored resin to blend in with your smile’s natural appearance.
