    Types Of Dental Fillings We Offer At Insight Dental Group

    Thanks to dental advancements, various types of filling materials are available that can effectively restore teeth. We offer high-quality dental fillings in Houston, TX, including:

    • Composite: This material consists of a mixture of resin and fine glass-like particles. It blends easily with the natural shade of your teeth, giving a realistic appearance. Additionally, composite resin is a durable material that can last for several years.
    • Amalgam: Consisting of metal alloys, amalgam is a highly resilient and stable filling material. One major drawback of amalgam is its metallic appearance, which makes it unfavorable for the restoration of anterior teeth.
    • Porcelain Inlays/Onlays: Porcelain is a well-known dental material due to its exceptional aesthetics. Using porcelain inlays or onlays, we can restore larger cavities and tooth damage while enhancing the appearance of your teeth.
    • Glass Ionomer: It is a tooth-colored material that releases fluoride into the enamel matrix, improving its strength. Because it is not highly durable, this material can be used to restore root cavities or primary teeth.

    Procedure For Dental Fillings

    During your initial consultation, our dentists will inspect the condition of your teeth to determine which type of filling will work best for you. The procedure of dental fillings at our Houston, TX, practice is simple, convenient, and typically takes a single visit. First, we will inject a local anesthetic near the damaged tooth to minimize pain and discomfort during the process. We will then remove the decayed portion of the tooth, retaining as much of your healthy tooth structure as possible.

    After tooth preparation, we will place the desired filling material and sculpt it to recreate the natural anatomy of your teeth. Composite fillings need to be cured for a few seconds before any adjustments are performed. The final steps involve finishing and polishing the surface for a smooth finish. We will also ensure that the filling material does not disturb your natural occlusion.
