Fillings are used to fill cavities and repair cracked or broken teeth. Dr. Wellik uses tooth-colored composite resin fillings in most situations.
To fill a tooth, a local anesthetic is applied to numb the tooth. The decayed area is then removed, cleaned, and prepared for the fillings. After your filling is complete, Dr. Wellik will polish the tooth to make it feel smooth and natural.
The procedure varies in time and cost, depending on the damage to the tooth. If you have any questions about fillings, please call our office today at (512) 451-5183.
