Tooth Fillings in Novi, MI

At Goldstein Dental Group, we offer dental fillings as a trusted solution for treating cavities. Cavities, caused by the gradual erosion of tooth enamel due to plaque buildup and sugary diets, can lead to discomfort and structural damage if left untreated. Our dental fillings are a straightforward and effective way to address these issues.

There are various materials to choose from for your filling, each offering unique benefits and considerations. During your visit, you and your dentist will have the opportunity to explore these options and determine the most suitable one for your needs. Composite fillings are a popular choice due to their tooth-colored appearance, making them an excellent match for front teeth or visible areas of the mouth. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing both functionality and aesthetics.

What to Expect When Getting a Filling

After a thorough examination and diagnosis, your dentist will discuss the best filling material for your specific needs, considering factors like the location and size of the cavity. Once the material is selected, the affected tooth will be gently numbed to ensure a painless procedure.

Your dentist will then carefully remove the decayed portion of the tooth and fill it with the chosen material. The process is typically quick and efficient, and you’ll leave our office with a restored tooth that looks and feels natural. We are here to address any questions or concerns you may have about the process.

Whether you’re dealing with a minor cavity or a more extensive dental concern, our team is dedicated to providing you with personalized care, ensuring your comfort and peace of mind.

Tooth Decay

More Than a Solution for Tooth Decay

Tooth fillings, while commonly associated with treating cavities, serve a broader range of dental applications. They are a versatile solution for addressing various dental issues beyond decay repair.

If you have chipped teeth, fillings can be used to restore their shape and functionality seamlessly. Dental fillings also close gaps or spaces between teeth, enhancing your smile’s symmetry. For cracked or broken teeth, fillings provide essential structural support and reinforcement. When teeth become worn due to grinding or other factors, fillings can effectively restore their surfaces, preventing further damage and maintaining optimal oral health.
