Dental Fillings and Restorations
Dental Fillings and Restorations are minimally invasive procedures to improve the overall function and aesthetics of your teeth.
Types of dental materials for Fillings:
- Glass Ionomer Cement – has protective properties such as fluoride which lowers the risks of future decays. This material is mostly used in small cavities and can be re-applied easily when the restoration wears down overtime.
- Composite Resin – this material gives excellent functional capacity and aesthetics. It is a commonly used restorative material that repairs all sizes of cavities.
- Composite/Porcelain Onlay – visually speaking, there’s not much difference between glass ionomer cement and composite resin but this material is the most durable out of these types which makes it the top running restorative procedure. This material is used in large sized cavities.
In our practice, patients can anticipate to pay around $150-$300 depending on the cavity size and material being used. It will take at about 45 minutes to an hour for this dental filling procedure.
