Fillings

Traditional dental restoratives, or fillings, may include gold, porcelain, and composite. The strength and durability of traditional dental materials continue to make them useful for situations where restored teeth must withstand extreme forces that result from chewing, such as in the back of the mouth.

Newer dental fillings include ceramic and plastic compounds that mimic the appearance of natural teeth. These compounds, often called composite resins, are usually used on the front teeth where a natural appearance is important, as well as on the back teeth depending on the location and extent of the tooth decay.

What’s Right for Your Child?

Several factors influence the performance, durability, longevity and expense of dental restorations, including:

  • The components used in the filling material
  • The amount of tooth structure remaining
  • Where and how the filling is placed
  • The chewing load that the tooth will have to bear
  • The length and number of visits needed to prepare and adjust the restored tooth.

Before your child’s treatment begins, the doctor will discuss with you all of your options, and help you choose the best filling for your child’s particular case. To help you prepare for this discussion it may be helpful to understand the two basic types of dental fillings – direct and indirect.

Direct fillings are fillings placed immediately into a prepared cavity in a single visit. They include glass ionomers, resin ionomers, and composite (resin) fillings. The dentist prepares the tooth, places the filling, and adjusts it in just one appointment.

Indirect fillings generally require two or more visits. They include inlays, onlays, veneers, crowns, and bridges fabricated with gold, base metal alloys, ceramics, or composites. During the first visit, the dentist prepares the tooth and makes an impression of the area to be restored. The dentist then places a temporary covering over the prepared tooth. The impression is sent to a dental laboratory which creates the dental restoration. At the next appointment, the dentist cements the restoration into the prepared cavity and adjusts it as needed.

I've been going to Dr. Scott Spencer for a year now for an orthodontic treatment. This dental office is by far the best I've been to. The staff is very professional and friendly. I usually ask for Eduardo, one of the ortho assistants; he always does a GREAT job with my braces and is very knowledgeable and funny too. Doctor Spencer works so well and is so kind to his patients. He will take the time to discuss and explain to you the treatment plan and length of the treatment. I am so glad I chose this office to do my orthodontic treatment, they make having braces a good experience. Thanks for all you do!

This place was heaven sent. After calling around all day for someone to see my son who was in so much pain and getting turned away for no availability. They offered me an appointment within the next hour of my call. They had speedy and excellent customer service. The doctor Jason Dale was the best. He saw the severity of my son's situation and offered to fit him in the same day and even stayed late after closing to finish the procedure. Jenny, (his assistant) kept my baby laughing and in good spirit the whole way. After the procedure, they were very informative on what to expect and do afterward. They even did a courtesy call to check on him. It Doesn't get any better than that. Hands down they are the best!
