What are Dental Fillings?
Dental fillings are conventional dental restoratives that are of two kinds: direct and indirect. Usually, dentists use fillings made from silver amalgam. Due to the durability and resilience of this material, dental fillings are useful for conditions in which restored teeth need to withstand the forces of chewing at the back of your mouth. Our family dentist in Montrose has the experience of performing restorative dental fillings to restore your tooth or teeth.
Direct fillings require a single visit to the dentist. Your dentist places filling directly into your cavity to fill it in. This type of fillings includes composite (resin), silver amalgam, resin ionomers, and glass ionomers.
It's easy, fast and secure.
Indirect fillings generally need two or more visits to the cosmetic dentist in Montrose. It is advisable to opt for indirect fillings when a tooth is damaged enough to support a filling but does not need a crown. These include onlays, veneers, and inlays.
