Irvine Tooth Cafe & Orthodontics specializes in providing durable and aesthetic dental fillings. Our expert team uses the latest materials and techniques to restore the function and appearance of your teeth effectively.

Understanding Dental Fillings and Their Importance

Dental fillings are used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay or fracture. They restore the integrity of the tooth and prevent further decay. Fillings are essential for maintaining good oral health and avoiding more extensive procedures in the future.

Types of Fillings We Offer

We offer the following white / tooth colored filling materials:

  • Composite Fillings: Tooth-colored and ideal for front teeth or visible parts of teeth.
  • Porcelain Fillings: Durable and color-matched to your natural teeth.

Our team will help you choose the best material based on the location of the filling, the extent of the repair, and aesthetic considerations.

The Process of Getting a Dental Filling

The process of getting a dental filling at our clinic is straightforward:

  • Examination: Our dentist will first examine the affected tooth and may use X-rays.
  • Anesthesia: If necessary, local anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort.
  • Decay Removal: The decayed or damaged part of the tooth will be removed.
  • Filling Placement: The filling material is then applied to the cavity and shaped to match the tooth's natural contours.
  • Polishing: Finally, the filling is polished to ensure a smooth finish.
