Dental Fillings in Greenwood

woman receiving a dental fillingWhile no one likes to be told they need a filling, we’ve made incredible advancements in treating cavities over the years. Gone are the days of painful, time consuming cavity treatments.

At Greenwood Dental Surgery, you can receive a filling in just one visit without feeling any pain.

What Are They?

Fillings are restorations that repair and rebuild teeth that have been harmed by decay or cavities. After removing the damaged portion of the tooth, this type of restoration seals out bacteria and protects the tooth so that it can function normally.


What to Expect

Cavities are often detected during your routine checkup and clean appointment. If your dentist determines that you have decay, cavities or broken teeth, they will let you know and discuss your various treatment options.

The process is quite straightforward: we give you a local anaesthetic and then remove the affected tooth structure. We place the composite material to fill the portion of the tooth we removed, then shape and polish it.

In our practice, we use white composite fillings because they are attractive, affordable, and tend to strengthen a tooth that has been weakened by decay. And they’re nearly indistinguishable from your natural tooth, so you can smile confidently!

The Importance of Routine Checkups

When you come into Greenwood Dental Surgery regularly, we are able to identify and address issues early, before they require more costly and complex interventions. When a cavity isn’t detected early, the decay can spread and infect the root of the tooth. Once that happens, a filling usually isn’t enough—you’ll typically need a root canal and crown, or perhaps even an extraction.

That’s why we keep our prices affordable! We want everyone in Greenwood to have access to quality dental care to keep their smiles healthy and beautiful.
