Fillings are considered a restorative procedure. That is because they can “restore” a tooth’s structure back to normal function and shape.

Often, a filling is all that is needed to repair a tooth that has a cavity, crack, is worn down, broken, discolored or genetically disformed.  

There are several different types of dental filling materials available.  Dr. Beussink mainly uses bonded, tooth colored fillings. The reasons for this is because they are esthetically pleasing, durable, and easy to care for.  

It is highly important to care and maintain teeth with fillings. Fillings seldom “fall out” on their own. Usually they are weakened by surrounding decay. Although the tooth has been restored and is healthy again, new problems can arise if proper preventative care is not done on a daily basis.
