Tooth Fillings in Brownstown Charter Twp., MI

At Jaffe Dental Group, we provide dental fillings as a trusted solution for the treatment of cavities. Caused by a buildup of plaque from sugary diets and a lack of oral hygiene, cavities can lead to discomfort and structural damage if left unattended. Our dental fillings offer a straightforward and highly effective way to combat these dental issues and relieve you of any pain.

When it comes to dental fillings, there’s a variety of materials to choose from, each with its own set of advantages. During your visit, our dentists will explore these options with you and determine the most suitable filling material for your specific needs. Composite fillings, for instance, are a popular choice due to their tooth-colored appearance. This makes composite fillings ideal for front teeth or visible areas of the mouth, as they effortlessly blend with your natural teeth, providing functionality and aesthetic appeal.

The Process

How Fillings Work

Whether you’re dealing with a minor cavity or a more complex dental issue, our dedicated team at Jaffe Dental Group is committed to providing you with personalized dental care, starting with fillings. Following a comprehensive examination and diagnosis, your dentist will discuss the most suitable filling material for your specific needs, taking into account the cavity’s location and the size of the area. Once we’ve determined the filling material, we’ll administer anesthesia to numb the area and make the procedure more comfortable.

We’ll carefully remove the decayed portion of the tooth and replace it with the chosen filling material. At Jaffe Dental Group, we recommend composite fillings because they have the ability to look just like your natural tooth. The entire process is quick, taking about an hour to complete, allowing you to leave with a fully restored tooth that looks and feels entirely natural.

Problem Solving

Fillings Solve More Than Tooth Decay

While tooth fillings are frequently linked with cavity treatment, they offer a wide array of dental applications that extend beyond tooth decay. The dentists at Jaffe Dental Group use fillings for various other dental issues.

If you have chipped teeth, fillings can restore the shape and functionality, seamlessly blending with your natural teeth. Dental fillings are also effective in closing gaps or spaces between teeth, enhancing the symmetry of your smile. In cases of cracked or broken teeth, fillings provide crucial structural support and reinforcement, making sure your tooth’s strength remains intact. Additionally, if your teeth have been worn down due to grinding, we can use filling materials to restore the surface and prevent future damage.
