Dental Fillings | Athens Dentist
Dental fillings Athens GA take the place of existing tooth structure that has become damaged through decay or other causes. There are several dental fillings materials available including gold, porcelain, and composite resin fillings. The process of putting in a dental filling is a part of a short visit to the office and will typically require the use of a localized numbing substance. The location and extent of the decay, cost of filling material, and the patient’s insurance coverage can determine the type of filling best for you.
William Rice, DDS and Athens Dentist, is an expert at all things preventative dental care and cosmetic dental care. He can place a filling quickly, using a material that fits both your desired look and budget.

Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings Athens GA
Composite dental fillings are the more desired type of filling because they match the natural tooth color and are virtually undetectable. These types of fillings are particularly useful in fillings in the front teeth where the fillings will be more visible. These composite fillings chemically bond to the tooth, providing great hold and support. In addition to being used for repairing decay, composite fillings are also used for repairing chips and cracks or broken teeth. The natural appearance of these fillings allows you to regain the basic function and look of your tooth.
