Dr. Lisa Kirshenbaum and Dr. Thomas Shaw may recommend a dental filling if you have developed a cavity or sustained other minor tooth damage. This simple restoration can quickly repair and restore your tooth, giving you back a healthy smile in just a single visit to our office. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite fillings. While amalgam or silver fillings have historically been used to restore your teeth, composite or tooth-colored fillings are most commonly used today, as they provide a naturally beautiful final result that is long-lasting and which promotes better long-term results for your oral health and smile.

The process of getting a dental filling is straightforward and comfortable, requiring just a single visit to Dental Excellence of Kennesaw. Our dentists will begin by removing the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth and thoroughly cleaning the area to eliminate any remaining traces of decay. Then, the filling material is applied and shaped to match the contours of your tooth. Finally, the filling is hardened to complete your treatment and ensure its durability. Our team will provide a local anesthetic and take care to ensure your comfort throughout this entire process.

Whether you have a cavity or a chipped tooth, a dental filling can effectively restore both the functionality and appearance of your tooth.
