Dental fillings are one of the most common dental procedures performed in our Westborough dental office, used to address tooth decay and minor tooth damage.
A dental filling can play an important role in helping you maintain the structure of your natural smile and avoid more complex dental problems. Dr. Daljeet can place a tooth filling during a single visit using a range of materials to suit your needs. When appropriate, we recommend using composite resin to fill a tooth cavity. Also called a “white filling”, composite resin is color matched to your smile and creates a strong seal for the prevention of future decay.
We offer local anesthetic for your comfort and use the Wand for a virtually painless experience.
Inlays & Onlays
For tooth cavities that are located in the larger back teeth, an inlay or onlay may be recommended for the best long-term result. Also called a partial crown, this type of restoration is typically made of a ceramic or porcelain material to match your existing teeth.
Dr. Daljeet will evaluate your dental health needs and discuss your cosmetic goals before recommending the most suitable option for addressing tooth decay.
Replacing Dark Teeth Fillings: Instant Smile Makeover
Dr. Daljeet can replace old teeth fillings that are dark, easily visible when smiling or leaking. A new composite white filling can provide an instant smile makeover while also improving your overall dental health.
Once the type of filling has been chosen, we will clean the area. Using the Wand, a local anesthetic is delivered without the need for needles. The decay or infection is gently removed and the filling material is sculpted into place.
Dr. Daljeet will make adjustments to ensure you have a comfortable bite before sealing the filling and polishing for a smooth look and feel.
