Dental Fillings In Holland, MI

A filling is a way to restore a decayed tooth back to its normal shape and function. If you have a tooth that requires a filling, we will first remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area and fill the cleaned-out cavity with a white filling material. This filling will help prevent further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria might enter.

Types Of Fillings We Offer

Amalgam (Silver)
Amalgam Fillings are a more inexpensive choice and are also well-tolerated. However, due to their dark color, they are more noticeable than porcelain or composite restorations and are not recommended for fillings in very visible areas such as front teeth.

Composite (White / Resin)
Resin fillings are custom-made to the exact color of the patient’s teeth, creating a more natural appearance. While these white fillings may be less noticeable than other materials, they usually only last between 5 and 10 years. They may not be ideal for larger fillings as they may chip or wear over time. They can also become stained from coffee, tea or tobacco.
