Do I Need A Dental Filling?

Dental fillings can be a quick, effective solution to treat tooth decay, cracked teeth, fractured teeth, and worn down teeth. Dental fillings are one of the most common dental treatments patients receive. Depending on your specific case, Indianapolis general dentist Dr. Amy Marckese may offer resin dental fillings or porcelain dental fillings. Dr. Marckese uses tooth-colored dental fillings to achieve a natural, seamless result.

Types of Dental Fillings

Resin Dental Fillings: Resin dental fillings are a biocompatible composite resin. Dr. Marckese typically uses resin dental fillings to repair teeth that have been damaged by minor decay. Resin dental fillings are a temporary solution for tooth decay. Dr. Marckese can work with you to create a more permanent solution to address your dental needs.

Porcelain Dental Fillings: Porcelain dental fillings are known as either dental inlays or dental onlays. These are used to repair teeth with more significant decay or damage.

*If you have old amalgam (metal) dental fillings, you may choose to have them replaced by Dr. Marckese.

Maintaining Dental Fillings

Taking care of your dental filling is similar to maintaining your natural smile. Patients should brush twice a day, floss, and rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash. Visiting our Indianapolis, IN dental office at least twice a year allows Dr. Marckese to keep track of your oral health. Visiting the dentist regularly can minimize your risk of developing complex dental problems.
