Durable and Aesthetic Dental Fillings for Healthy Teeth

Dental Fillings


Dental fillings are a common and essential procedure at Foothills Family Dental in Fort Collins, CO 80524. Our practice offers advanced filling materials designed to restore the integrity of your teeth while maintaining a natural appearance.

Why Are Dental Fillings Necessary?

Fillings are typically used to repair teeth that have been affected by decay or minor fractures. The process involves removing the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth and filling it with a durable material to prevent further damage and restore function.

Types of Dental Fillings We Offer

We provide various types of fillings to suit different needs, including:

  • Composite Fillings: Tooth-colored fillings that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
  • Amalgam Fillings: Durable, traditionally used fillings, suitable for back teeth.

The Dental Filling Process

The process starts with numbing the affected area for your comfort. Our dentist then carefully removes decay and prepares the tooth for the filling. The chosen filling material is then applied, shaped, and hardened for a perfect fit and finish.

Advantages of Modern Dental Fillings

Today's dental fillings are not only functional but also aesthetic. They are designed to withstand the forces of chewing and can last many years with proper care.

Caring for Your Dental Fillings

We will provide you with guidance on caring for your fillings, including proper oral hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups to ensure their longevity.

Are Dental Fillings Painful?

We prioritize patient comfort. The procedure is minimally invasive, and we take every measure to ensure a pain-free experience, including the use of local anesthesia.
