A filling restores a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When Dr. Thomason gives you a filling, he first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cleaned out cavity with tooth colored filling material. By closing off spaces where bacteria can enter, a filling helps prevent further decay. Ultimately, the best dental filling is no dental filling. You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases simply by:

  • Brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
  • Flossing daily
  • Eating a balanced diet
  • Visiting the dentist regularly
