Throughout a lifetime, pretty much everyone needs to have a tooth filled. When getting fillings, there are options to consider. Filling teeth is one of the most routine procedures for dentists, and it is not uncommon for us to assume a patient knows all the options. A dentist often will simply proceed with using their filling material of choice, especially in cases where the patient has had multiple fillings in the past.
To help you understand all your options, we have listed them here. Please keep in mind, not all options are suitable for every case, and final decisions should only be made after consultation with your dentist. So if you have any questions about your next filling, contact us, because we can help.
