Do you have one or more teeth with a cavity? Dr. Jason Campbell can treat the cavity by removing the decay and replacing the lost tooth structure with a dental filling. We are pleased to offer high-quality dental fillings at Pro Solutions Dental Group to repair and strengthen your smile.

How is a dental filling made?
Our team will numb the decayed area with a local anesthetic so that our dentist can remove the decay and evaluate the tooth to ensure the cavity is completely gone. We will then clean all trace of debris and bacteria from the area, and Dr. Jason Campbell will place your dental filling one layer at a time, using a special light to harden the layers in place (a process known as “curing”). When the full dental filling has been placed, our dentist will shape, trim, and polish the material.

Does my dental insurance cover receiving a filling?
The majority of dental insurance plans cover the cost of a silver filling, or in the case of a composite filling, up to the cost of a silver filling and then you will pay the remaining balance. However, you will need to check with your dental insurance to be sure.

How do I care for my filling?
While dental fillings do not require special treatment, you need to practice good oral hygiene to keep the tooth healthy. Brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily, and visit the dentist at least every six months for cleanings and exams. Please contact our team at Pro Solutions Dental Group if any problems arise with your filling, such as tooth sensitivity, cracks, or sharp edges.
