Cavities can cause small holes in your back teeth, the molars and premolars, and need to be treated so they don’t cause bigger holes and in extreme cases, tooth loss. Your dentist will use a dental filling to fill in the hole and restore the health of the tooth. The filling will help prevent further decay from building up on the tooth. Fillings can also be used to repair teeth that are cracked or broken.

Signs You Need A Dental Filling

  • Tooth pain when biting or chewing food
  • Tooth is sensitive to cold or hot foods or drinks
  • Floss tears in a certain spot
  • A fractured, chipped or broken tooth

Often, patients don’t realize they have a cavity as the symptoms can be subtle or unnoticeable. That’s why it is important to keep up with your regular dental checkups so your dentist can catch any issues before they become bigger problems. If your dentists suspects a cavity they will take x-rays to determine if it is indeed a filling. Cavities are seen as dark areas on the tooth in an x-ray.

Filling Procedure

In the case of a cavity filling, your dentist will first administer local anesthesia to the area around the tooth. The dentist will then clean out any decay from the tooth and clean the area. It will then be shaped to prepare it for the filling.

The dentist will then fill it with a strong composite resin. The composite resin is matched to the color of your teeth to achieve a natural appearance. The material is then hardened and shaped in order to maintain the integrity of your bite. To finish, the dentist will polish the tooth.

If you have questions or concerns about fillings please call our office at (810) 736-9778 to speak to one of our caring staff.

I made my first phone call, and Connie was so nice and informative. They did not accept my insurance, so I went to a place at Dort and Atherton that did..... Bad move on my part. A little while into my 2 hour wait/appointment I made the phone call back over to Dr Bundy office and talked to Connie again, I asked if I could come over to them and pay out of pocket instead....... She said come on over now. I up and left and no one said a word at the other place. I felt so comfortable as soon as I walked into the waitingroom. Both girls behind the counter greeted me with a hello and a smile. Jen came and lead me to the room that I would meet my New dentist! All I can say is they took great care of me when I was in desperate need. Thank you so much!

I’ve had 4/5 of the dental hygienists clean my teeth and I’ve adored all of them! They are so friendly and make me feel comfortable while I’m there. The entire staff is extremely caring! Highly recommend!

I walked in for my first appointment yesterday and was greeted by their friendly staff. I spent over 2 hours in their office getting my X-rays taken, teeth cleaned, and finally my examination by Dr. Bundy. There wasn't a dull moment while I was there, they are all extremely friendly people who are passionate about what they do.

What a wonderful dental group, I have had bad experience with other dentists so I am always leary about going to someone new but I felt so comfortable with the dental hygienist Mandi and we talked like we were good friends and she explained everything to me what she was doing and no pain at all cleaning my teeth. Dr Rosenbrook is so nice and also made me feel really comfortable and he also explained my treatment plan, Melissa is really nice as well. If you need a good dentist Dr. Rosenbrook is the place to go.

My husband avoided going to the dentist for years because of traumatic experiences in the past. He has recently started going to today's dental comfort and he likes them a lot. I have severe anxiety of the dentist and they have made my experiences with them pleasant and put my mind at ease. They are also amazing with our daughter when she has to go.
