In the past, getting a cavity meant having a silver filling that shows everyone how bad your teeth are. Now, we can use composite fillings to treat your cavities and can be shaded to match the natural color of your tooth and give you that great healthy look. No one will be able to tell you got a filling and your smile will still look wonderful.

How are filling placed?

To place a filling, the dentist will clean all the decay (cavity) from the tooth and place the bonding material inside of the hole. A curing light will be used to harden the material and will be shaped so the filling will look and feel natural.

I think I have a cavity. How much does it cost to get a filling?

Every tooth has five surfaces. The cost will vary as it depends on the amount of surfaces that need to be filled, how deep the decay is and which teeth it is.
