What Are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings, also known as dental restorations, are materials used to restore teeth that have been affected by tooth decay or fractures. Dr. Adam Foleck uses high-quality dental fillings at The Foleck Center in the Virginia Bay area to repair damage to teeth and prevent further decay.

The most common types of dental fillings include silver amalgam, composite resin, porcelain, and gold. Dr. Foleck will examine your mouth, take X-rays, and determine which type of filling material is best suited for your situation. He crafts each filling at The Foleck Center carefully to match the shape and shade of your natural teeth.

Who Needs a Dental Filling?

If you have tooth decay, a fractured tooth, or existing old fillings that are worn down, damaged, or came out, you likely need new dental fillings from The Foleck Center in the beautiful Virginia Bay area. Dr. Adam Foleck will provide a thorough oral exam, checking all surfaces of your teeth for signs of:

  • Tooth decay and cavities
  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Broken cusps

Other reasons you may need dental fillings include teeth grinding issues, filtration under old silver fillings, and support for a weak tooth structure. Dr. Foleck can assess your smile and determine if fillings will restore your oral health during your visit to The Foleck Center.

The Filling Process at the Foleck Center

If Dr. Adam Foleck decides you need a dental filling at The Foleck Center in Virginia Bay, he will ensure the process is as quick and comfortable as possible. Here are the general steps:

Numbing: Dr. Foleck will inject a local anesthetic to numb the area around your tooth. You’ll remain awake for the entire process but feel no pain.

Decay removal: Dr. Foleck uses a small drill to remove the decayed material from your tooth. He will remove only the affected area and preserve healthy tooth structure.

Etching: Your tooth will be washed and etched with an acid gel to help the filling material properly adhere. The Foleck Center only uses brand-new materials to fill your tooth.

Placement: Dr. Foleck skillfully shapes and places the new sterile filling into your prepared tooth. He meticulously sculpts a natural shape and texture.

Polishing: Once cured and hardened, your new filling is smoothed and polished for your comfort.

The whole process usually takes less than 90 minutes from start to finish at The Foleck Center!
