Tucson Dental Fillings

We Can Help You Get Rid of Cavities for Good

Dental fillings serve to strengthen and protect a tooth after a part of the tooth has been injured or treated, such as during a cavity treatment. Our composite fillings at Desert Dental Group are strong and blend in beautifully with the rest of your smile. If you need a dental filling in Tucson, we invite you to contact the office of Dr. Brett M. Barney. We can help you schedule your next appointment with our dentist and answer your questions. Our team serves patients throughout the Vail, Eastside Tucson, and Rita Ranch areas.

Types of Fillings

A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if your tooth has been damaged by tooth decay (for example, if your tooth has a cavity), or if your tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function and to return your smile to good health.

There are a few different types of fillings, and depending on your budget, insurance, oral health, and cavity needs, you may consider some of the following filling material:

  • Composite fillings: These fillings are made of resin and match the color of your tooth. They do wear over time and may need to be replaced.
  • Gold fillings: Gold fillings are incredibly durable and can last upwards of 20 years. These materials can be expensive, as they are custom-fit, but they have little chance of rejection by the body.
  • Silver fillings: Like gold fillings, these fillings are durable and are custom-fit to the individual’s tooth. These fillings can be cost-effective, but are generally dark and only applied to smaller areas.
  • Porcelain fillings: These fillings are bonded to the teeth and can last for many years. They do not wear like normal teeth, so the tooth may stay whiter than the rest of your teeth over time.

The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of your tooth, and then clean the tooth to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the tooth with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened for a lasting restoration.
