Dental fillings are a common restoration treatment used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. In most cases, the damage is caused by tooth decay such as cavities. In other cases, a filling may be recommended due to minor fracturing or chipping. Whatever the reason, fillings are typically a straightforward procedure that is completed in one dental visit with little to no discomfort.
At Midlothian Dental Arts, Dr. Stafford is skilled in using composite fillings, known for their durability and lasting restoration. If you suspect tooth decay or damage, we recommend scheduling an appointment with our dentists right away. By repairing the tooth in the early stages, you are much more likely to prevent ongoing decay.
With a proper hygiene routine, dental fillings are known to last for 5-12 years. Call Midlothian Dental Arts today to schedule an appointment. We are happy to examine your teeth and determine whether fillings are a necessary treatment for you.
