Tooth Fillings

Tooth Fillings

Santa Cruz Dentist – Heit Family Dentistry is a premier restorative dental provider offering fillings for patients.  Patients can choose from tooth-colored composite fillings or silver amalgam fillings.  Fillings are used to repair teeth that experience decay, cavities, or that are cracked or broken.  The decayed or damaged portion of the tooth is removed and then the area is prepared for the tooth filling.  The filling bonds to the tooth, strengthening the existing tooth and preventing further decay or deterioration.  The filling procedure can be completed in just one dental visit.

Tooth-colored fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are a popular option for teeth that require new fillings, as well as for those that require replacement of older, deteriorating amalgam fillings.  These composite fillings are matched to the natural tooth color, making them virtually indistinguishable from the rest of the tooth.  Natural-colored tooth fillings are also strong, long-lasting, and effective at repairing decayed and damaged portions of teeth.

If you are interested in learning more about amalgam and composite tooth fillings in our Heit Family dental office, contact us today at 831-423-3364.
