Types of Fillings

Proper tooth restoration requires a professional evaluation of the tooth with the cavity. Our team will not only identify the cavity, but we will also ensure that the right type of filling material is used. We will use a rubber dam when required to help with moisture and increase the longevity of the restoration. The different types of fillings and treatments we use to treat cavities are:

  • Composite/White Fillings – White fillings are the most popular type of filling because it is the most aesthetically pleasing. We offer Admira Fusion Composite, Grandioso Composite, and Admira Fusion X-tra Composite.
  • Glass Ionomer Fillings – This type of filling allows for fluoride release and binds well to the root surface. It is minimally invasive and perfect for fillings next to gums, for children, and for areas where moisture control is difficult to achieve.
  • Silver Diamine Fluoride – Silver Diamine Fluoride is used to harden cavities that are located deep in the tooth. This method preserves the tooth structure and is safe to use on children.
  • Amalgam/Metal Fillings – Metal fillings are extremely strong, and they will last for a long time. They are not affected by moisture and are often used for deep fillings below the gum. Permite is the type of amalgam/metal filling.

What Is Crack Tooth Syndrome?

Do your teeth hurt when you chew? This could indicate that your tooth has a crack and that you have Crack Tooth Syndrome.

With people grinding and clenching during these difficult times, we have been seeing crack tooth syndrome become more prevalent. Most cracked teeth can be saved if treated early before the crack continues to propagate.


Causes include large fillings undermining a cusp/part of the tooth, teeth with minimal or no filling that have experienced high bite forces through clenching and grinding, and trauma.

Signs and Symptoms

Symptoms include a sharp pain on release, when biting. The crack may not be visible to the naked eye or seen on an x-ray. The crack may extend below the gum and form a deep gum pocket.

Safe and Effective Fillings

Fillings are a great way to treat cavities. They are safe, effective, and long-lasting. Our dentists provide fillings for those who are experiencing tooth decay. Fillings are vital to protecting the rest of your tooth. Without a filling, the cavity will continue to expand, which can lead to more painful and costly treatment options. Not only are fillings used to treat a cavity, but they can be used to fill non-cavity holes in your teeth, repair fractured teeth, correct discoloration, and more. Our professionals will suggest a filling for you only if it is necessary. If you suspect that you have a cavity, reach out to us as soon as possible to schedule an appointment.
