Tooth Colored Fillings

Are you ready to have a cavity-free smile? If so, we provide fillings in Tyler, Texas, that do the job!

We offer fillings to correct cavities and to also repair any cracks or breaks you might have. There are many different types of fillings you could benefit from, including gold fillings, silver amalgam fillings, composite resin fillings, ceramic fillings, and glass ionomer fillings. When you are at your next appointment, your dentist will sit down and talk to you about which filling will be most beneficial for you.

The process of plugging a tooth hole with a filling involves your dentist at East Texas Dental Group giving you a local anesthetic to numb the area of the tooth. Next, your dentist will remove the decayed area. Your dentist will then check the tooth to make sure it is completely free of decay. The filling will then be applied in layers. Once the tooth is full, a special light will be used to harden the filling. Your dentist will finish the treatment by trimming any excess material and polishing the final restoration.
