Term Definition
Fillings

Fillings are used to correct areas of small decay to replace the hole left by removing infected tooth structure. They can either be made with composite resin (white, tooth colored material) or with traditional alloy material. While each have their advantages in restoring small decayed areas, Dr. Kelly typically uses composite resin when indicated for a more esthetic and natural appearance. In situations where a great deal of tooth structure is compromised with decay; inlays, onlays and crowns are indicated to restore teeth as a more durable option.
