Even after a lifetime of good care, dental fillings are often a necessary restorative service for older patients. Not only does filling a tooth restore it to its normal functionality, but it also helps to prevent further decay and degeneration. There are a number of different ways a tooth may be filled, from gold and silver fillings to plastic resins designed to match the natural color of teeth. To determine which method may be best, your dentist will talk with you about several considerations, including the extent and location of the repair, known allergies, and cost. As with all of Dr. Kauffman’s services, these restorative fillings can be done in home.
