Dental fillings are used to treat cavities, repair cracked or broken teeth.

Dental fillings Procedures:

  • Anesthetic to numb the area
  • Remove Tooth Decay
  • Fill the tooth using a composite or amalgam fillings
  • Bite check to make sure your teeth are aligned

Signs of a cracked tooth:

  • Sharp pain when biting
  • Pain that comes consistently
  • Pain when eating or drinking

A cracked tooth can be hard to tell. Cracks can be invisible to the human eye. If you are having such pain symptoms above, our dentist will be able to discover it during your exam.
Crack teeth can cause pain, when the enamel travels through the nerve. The pain may occur when you bite down or when you stop biting. Nerve pulp is soft tissue inside the center of the tooth; it contains blood vessels and nerves.


How to treat a cracked tooth:

Once you have an exam with our Dentist, they will talk to you about what treatment is best. Treatment can vary on the size, location, and direction of the crack.

Types of treatment for a cracked tooth include:

    • Fill the tooth
    • Placing a crown or cap on the tooth to protect it
    • A root canal treatment
    • Extracting the tooth if it cannot be saved
