Restorations and Fillings
Stop Tooth Decay
A restoration or filling is used to re-build the tooth structure after part of it is removed to eliminate decay. Over time fillings can deteriorate, leak or break and they need to be replaced with new restorations. There are a number of different filling materials available and we will discuss the options with you and recommend the restoration that is most suitable for your specific situation. The fee for a filling varies depending on the size of the restoration and the type of material used. Generally, the cheaper materials have a limited lifespan and require replacement more often. The stronger options such as ceramic should last many years if they are properly cared for. For your information, we do not use amalgam filling material at Novo Dental.
