Take down cavities this winter with our dental filling restoration. Dental fillings are used to fill the space that is left behind after a cavity has been removed. Fillings are a great solution for stopping cavities from damaging your teeth further and minimizing future risk to your teeth.

Our two types of dental fillings are composites and amalgams. Each type of filling has their own distinct advantages, and Dr. Brandon Green at Masterpiece Dental can help you decide which one will work best for you. Listed below are some questions that can help you determine where to start:
