A dental filling in Orem, Utah, is one of the simplest ways for our dentists to repair worn, damaged, or decayed teeth. They are designed to restore the holes and grooves left on your tooth enamel once decay is removed. We use various restorative materials depending on what your smile needs. Available at the Dental Center are metal, alloy, plastic, and porcelain dental fillings. Dr. Peacock, Dr. Ball, and Dr. Broadbent will work together with you and your family to determine which kind of dental filling will be perfect for your smile.

In general, it only takes one visit to our dental office to place a dental filling. If necessary, the tooth is numbed to ensure you feel comfortable. Then, all decay is carefully removed from your tooth enamel. Once the area is sanitized, the material of choice is then applied and molded to fit the tooth’s natural shape. The filling hardens and is polished to a natural shine. Your dental filling will then be complete and ready to go.
