Dental Fillings in Wheaton
Dental fillings are a standard method for treating cavities and tooth decay. Fillings are used in order to prevent minor decay from rapidly spreading bacteria into the tooth’s pulp.
You may need a filling for any of the following reasons:
- You have chipped teeth.
- There is space between two teeth.
- Cracked/broken teeth.
- Decayed or worn teeth.
The procedure itself can take up to an hour, so it's really speedy. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area and keep you comfortable during the procedure. Your filling is custom-made to fit the shape and function of your tooth.
