Dental Fillings in Kansas City, MO

Benefits of Dental Fillings from Blue Stream Dental

A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if your tooth has been damaged by tooth decay (for example, if your tooth has a cavity), or if your tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function and to return your smile to good health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite fillings.

The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of your tooth, and then clean the tooth to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the tooth with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened for a lasting restoration.

If your tooth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. Contact us today and we can set up your appointment with Dr. Ledford to see if you may benefit from dental fillings. We are pleased to offer our patients metal-free restorations, so please call us today at 816-941-0980 and let our dentist bring back that perfect smile!
