Cavity Fillings and Sealants in New Berlin, WI

At Willow Dental, we use fillings to restore the form and function of your teeth after tooth decay has been removed. Our fillings are crafted from high-quality materials that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing durability and aesthetics.

Dental sealants, on the other hand, are applied as a protective coating to the grooves of the teeth, particularly molars, to prevent decay in these hard-to-clean areas. This combination of restorative and preventive care is essential for maintaining long-term dental health, especially for young patients and those prone to cavities.

  • How do cavity fillings work?

    Cavity fillings involve removing decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area, and then filling the cavity with composite resin, amalgam, or porcelain. The filling material restores the tooth’s integrity and prevents further decay by sealing off spaces where bacteria can enter.

    If you believe you’re suffering from a cavity, visit us as soon as possible. Getting a cavity filled as soon as it’s detected is crucial to prevent these complications and maintain overall dental health. Regular dental check-ups can help catch cavities early before they lead to more serious issues.

     

     

  • What types of fillings are there?

    Several types of fillings are available, each with its benefits. Composite resin fillings are popular for their ability to match the color of your natural teeth. Amalgam fillings are highly durable and cost-effective, making them suitable for filling cavities in the back teeth. Porcelain fillings offer longevity and strength, though they can be more expensive.

     

  • How long do dental sealants last?

    Dental sealants can last up to 10 years with proper care. However, they should be checked regularly during dental checkups for chipping or wearing. Reapplication or repair may be necessary to ensure continuous protection from decay.
