Lodi Dental Fillings

Tooth-Colored Cosmetic Dental Fillings

RESTORE YOUR SMILE WITH DURABLE AND NATURAL-LOOKING FILLINGS AT STEPHEN CHEUNG DDS

Dental fillings have been the tried and true method for repairing cavities and restoring teeth’s integrity. At Stephen Cheung DDS in Lodi, we combine traditional techniques with modern technology to provide fillings that are not only functional but blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.

WHY DO YOU NEED A FILLING?

Dental fillings are the first line of defense against cavities. Cavities, if left untreated, can expand, leading to pain, tooth loss, or more advanced procedures like root canals. The primary reasons to consider fillings include:

  • Tooth Decay: When the outer layer of your tooth gets eroded, creating a cavity.
  • Cracks or Fractures: To repair minor cracks or fractures that don’t require a crown.
  • Worn-Out Teeth: Often due to teeth grinding, nail-biting, or using teeth to open things.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT FILLING MATERIAL

Different situations might require different filling materials. Dr. Cheung offers:

  • Composite Resin (Tooth-Colored Fillings): Blends with your natural teeth and is excellent for front teeth or visible parts of teeth.
  • Amalgam (Silver Fillings): Durable and long-lasting, they are typically used for back teeth.
  • Gold: Well-tolerated by gum tissues and can last more than 20 years.
  • Porcelain: Matched to the same color as your teeth and resistant to staining.

Our team will help you select the material that best matches your needs, aesthetic preferences, and budget.

THE FILLING PROCESS AT STEPHEN CHEUNG DDS

Your comfort is our priority. After numbing the affected area, Dr. Cheung will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and then clean it. Once cleaned, the cavity will be filled with the chosen material. After setting the filling, it’s shaped to match your tooth’s natural contour.

With proper care, fillings can last for many years. Regular check-ups at Stephen Cheung DDS, along with good oral hygiene practices, will ensure the longevity of your fillings and overall oral health.

Are metal amalgam fillings problematic?

Aside from being extremely noticeable and unsightly, amalgam fillings can cause more harm to your health. They often contain mercury or other heavy metals that can affect your health. Another issue with these fillings is that they do not bend when pressure is applied to the tooth, and this causes more cracks in the teeth. Therefore, we recommend if you have amalgam filling to replace them.
