There are many factors that cause decay and damage to teeth, and as much as possible, we do not want to resort to tooth extraction for a solution. Good thing, we have dental fillings to help restore damaged teeth to their normal look and function.

With dental fillings, you can treat a cavity and restore a damaged tooth to its normal shape, function, and appearance so that it can be saved from extraction. This is performed by a dentist by removing the decayed part of the tooth and use filling material to fill the space or the cleaned out cavity.

At our office, we use composite fillings. These fillings are more natural looking because they are made to match the natural color of your teeth. Composite fillings can also get easily stained or discolored which is why it is better to stay away from food and drinks like coffee and tea. They also do not last as long as gold fillings. We also offer porcelain fillings – also known as inlays and onlays, these are also made in a laboratory and then cemented into the tooth. They are stain resistant and are also natural looking.

What is the proper aftercare for fillings?

Just like any restorative dental procedures, good oral hygiene is still essential in order to make sure your restorations last long. Proper brushing and flossing are important to constantly keep your mouth clean.You also have to make sure you continue your regular dental visits so that your dentist can check the condition of your fillings and help you ensure good overall oral health. There are times when fillings chip off or get damaged, so it is a must to have them checked on a regular basis. When it happens, your dentist will be able to assess the situation and will replace your filling immediately when there is a need to.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Gregory has been my dentist for 20+ years. He is an excellent and thorough dentist. Recently I undertook a smile restoration with 6 porcelain veneers. Dr. Gregory did an excellent job explaining all the ins and outs of the procedure, and did all of the work to his usual high standard. I couldn't be happier!"

"Dr. Gregory is the BEST dentist I've ever been to. He has taken great care of me for the almost 10 years that I have seen him for preventative care and also now is helping me straighten my teeth using aligners. He has a terrific "bedside" manner, only does what is necessary, and is clear and thorough in every cleaning. He will fit you in when you need to see him and takes ample time at every visit. At every routine care visit, he is incredibly thorough. He's also a nice person, and I love that it's a family business and his sister helps him run the business. You can't go wrong with choosing Dr. Gregory as your dentist!!"

"My husband and I have been patients of Dr Paul Gregory for over a decade. He is an excellent highly skilled dentist who is also a caring and conscientious and professional who always puts his patients first above monetary considerations. He is personable and trustworthy and makes each visit a pleasure and how many dentists can you say that about lol. Most importantly I know he has our best interest at heart and knows his field and we trust him to give us the best possible care. A shout out to his sister Linda who is the office manager. She is a lovely person who is extremely well organized and runs the office super smoothly and it is always a joy to chat with her. I give Dr. Gregory my highest recommendation."
