Restorative Dentistry and Tooth Fillings in Indiana

While teeth are strong and resilient, many people experience a need for restorative dentistry throughout their lives. Restorative dentistry in Indiana could include getting a tooth filling, root canals, or other procedures that keep your teeth functioning properly.

Could You Benefit from Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry involves the management of tooth and gum diseases to create a healthy, optimally functioning mouth. The objective with restorative treatments is to preserve the natural tooth whenever possible. Our dentists provide comprehensive solutions for restorative dentistry in Indiana that can help you restore your smile.

What Are Restorative Dentistry Procedures?

Our dentists have years of experience practicing restorative dentistry in Indiana. Some restorative procedures include receiving a tooth filling, crown placement, root canals, and full dental restoration. Your dentist will determine which procedures meet your needs.

Full Dental Restoration

Dentists will often recommend a dental restoration if the patient is suffering from multiple issues. This rehabilitation varies in cost, and can include dental implants, orthodontic devices, tooth filling work, and more. We work closely with patients to develop a restoration plan that meets their needs.

A Tooth Filling

If your tooth has been damaged by decay, a tooth filling will prevent more bacteria from entering the space.

Tooth Filling Materials: Choosing the Right Filling

We use a variety of materials to create a tooth filling in Indiana. Durable silver, gold, composite resin, porcelain, and glass ionomer are used to make reliable dental fillings.

How Much Would a Tooth Filling Cost?

A tooth filling is customized to meet your needs, so the cost will vary. Typically, tooth fillings are lower in cost than many other dental procedures. The type of filling you choose and your insurance coverage will factor into the cost of a tooth filling in Indiana.

Tooth Filling Procedure

Tooth filling procedures are administered at our dental office. This procedure takes several steps. First, the dentist uses anesthesia to ensure you feel no pain throughout the process. A rubber dam may be used to hold your mouth open as the dentist works. He or she will use a drill to remove plaque and decay from the cavity, followed by filling the hole with a durable dental filling material.

Types of Dental Fillings: From Silver to Porcelain

We successfully treat cavities in Indiana with tooth fillings. Tooth filling types include:

  • Amalgam: Made with durable zinc, silver, mercury, and tin, these fillings are often used for back teeth.
  • Composite resin: These fillings create a natural look and are made with plastic and fine glass particles.
  • Glass Ionomer: Best for non-load-bearing teeth, these fillings combine fine glass powder
  • Cast Gold: Some dentists consider resilient gold to be the best tooth filling material. It is easily tolerated by the mouth.
  • Porcelain: Often used for front teeth, porcelain fillings can be closely matched to natural teeth.

Cavities: A Simple Definition

A cavity is the space that remains once decay is removed from a tooth. These holes are caused by plaque erosion.

Cavity Treatment for Our Patients

Our dentists treat cavities in Indiana with tooth fillings. These devices protect the tooth against further decay and damage. If you think you may have a cavity, call our office to book an appointment.

Cavities: Why Do They Form?

Cavities develop when plaque, an acidic and sticky material, erodes the tooth enamel until a hole forms. As bacteria enters the area, the hole deepens, weakening the tooth.

Signs of Cavity: Could You Have a Cavity?

Do you have a tooth cavity? Here some cavity symptoms to watch out for:

  • Discomfort when chewing or drinking
  • An obvious hole in the tooth
  • Brown, white, or black staining on any of your teeth
  • Pain when biting down
  • General achy feeling in the teeth
