At some point in their lifetime, most people need at least one tooth filled. Dental fillings are most commonly used to treat cavities, but they’re also used to repair cracked/broken teeth or teeth that have been worn down over time.

Most dental filling procedures feature the following:

  • Topical anesthetic to numb the area of treatment
  • Decay removal from the affected teeth
  • Tooth restoration using a composite or amalgam filling
  • Bite check to make sure your teeth align comfortably

At Benton Family Dentistry, Hot Springs Dentist Dr. Benton will ensure you are comfortable before, during, and after your procedure. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
