If a tooth has been affected by minor decay or damage, a dental filling can effectively restore its health, function, and appearance. Composite dental fillings, which are made using composite resin, result in a white, tooth-colored restoration, while amalgam fillings are silver in color and are a durable restoration choice. Your caring and experienced dentist, Dr. Szymczak, will remove the damaged or decayed portion of the tooth, then fill in the tooth with the chosen type of dental filling. He will carefully shape the filling to ensure that it fits your smile comfortably and aesthetically. At Szymczak Family Dentistry, our dentist and dental team work hard to ensure that each dental treatment is pleasant and painless, and we are dedicated to educating you on your dental conditions and treatments. For more information on dental fillings, we invite you to contact our Glenville and Broadalbin, New York dental offices.
