What Can I Do

About A Cavity?

Once you've developed a cavity, there’s no way to reverse it without the proper treatment in Eau Claire, such as a dental filling.

Dental fillings are the best way to treat most cavities. This treatment involves removing the decayed tooth material and replacing it with an inert, biocompatible material. This halts decay, strengthens the tooth, and prevents further complications like tooth infections. Contact us now to see if you need a filling in Eau Claire.

Composite Filling (Posterior)

This video shows you how a composite filling restores a damaged or decayed tooth to its natural strength and appearance.
Natural, Realistic Restoration

Composite Fillings

Composite fillings, also called “tooth-colored” fillings, are made from a mixture of resin and glass particles. They look and feel very natural, and can be matched to your existing teeth. This makes them an excellent choice for fillings in front teeth, and for any situation where you’re concerned about the aesthetics of your dental restoration.

Durable, Long-Lasting Treatment

Metal Amalgam Fillings

Metal amalgam fillings, also called “silver” fillings are made from a blend of silver, mercury, tin, and copper. They are extremely durable but have a shiny appearance, so they are usually only used for rear molars. While they’re not right for all situations, they do have strong benefits.

The Benefits Of Amalgam Fillings

Holds up well to the pressure of chewing
Ideal for rear molars
Longer lifespan than composite fillings
Lower cost than tooth-colored alternatives
