Dental Fillings in Juneau, AK

Dental fillings, crucial for treating cavities and restoring tooth functionality, come in various materials, each with its own set of benefits. Understanding your options helps in making an informed decision tailored to your specific needs.

Dental Fillings: Choosing the Right Restoration

Traditional Silver Amalgam:

Strength and Durability: Ideal for withstanding intense chewing forces, especially in the back teeth. Common Use: Often employed in the back of the mouth where strength is a primary consideration.

Modern Composite Resins:

Natural Appearance: Mimics the look of natural teeth, making them suitable for visible areas. Versatility: Adaptable for both front and back teeth, depending on decay location and extent.

Considerations for Choosing:

Filling Material Components: The materials used influence performance, durability, and appearance.
Remaining Tooth Structure:
The amount of existing tooth structure impacts the choice of filling.
Placement and Load-Bearing:
Location of the filling and the expected chewing load are crucial considerations.
Procedure Complexity:
Direct fillings are placed in a single visit, while indirect fillings require multiple visits.

Types of Dental Fillings:

Direct Fillings: Completed in one visit, including options like silver amalgam, glass ionomers, resin ionomers, and composite (resin) fillings.
Indirect Fillings: Involve two or more visits, including inlays, onlays, and veneers made from materials like gold, alloys, ceramics, or composites.

Choosing the Right Filling:

● Discussion with Your Dentist: Your dentist will consider your case, discussing options, benefits, and potential outcomes.● Understanding Indirect Fillings: Used when a tooth needs more support than a filling but less than a crown.

We will guide you through the decision-making process, ensuring the selected filling aligns with your oral health needs and preferences.
