What is a dental filling?
If your teeth have been injured or decayed, Dr. Mario J. Roybal may recommend a dental filling to restore your smile to good health. Dental fillings are one of the most common restorative procedures we offer, and are useful for repairing minor to moderate damage to your smile. During a dental filling, our experienced dentist will:

• Remove the damaged or decayed portion of the tooth
• Carefully clean the remaining tooth
• Fill the tooth one layer at a time, leaving each layer adequate time to dry
• Shape and polish the filling to blend it with your unique smile

Dr. Mario J. Roybal may suggest a dental filling if your teeth are cracked, chipped, or worn down by habits like nail-biting or teeth grinding. Dental fillings are often employed to treat a cavity.
