Restorations

To restore a tooth with minor decay or damage, our dentists will provide a dental filling. Fillings have been used for hundreds of years to repair damaged teeth. At Gonsoulin Dentistry in Lafayette, we can provide two types of fillings for your convenience: composite or white fillings and amalgam or silver fillings.  Both filling materials are effective and our dentists can help you decide which is right for you during your appointment. The appointment will require just one visit to our office, during which we will:

  • Remove the damaged tooth structure
  • Clean the healthy tooth
  • Place the amalgam or composite filling
  • Shape and polish the filling to match the contours of your natural tooth

If you are interested in learning more about dental restorations or any of the pediatric and family dentistry services we provide, we invite you to contact us soon. We will be happy to answer your questions and schedule your next appointment with one of our caring, friendly dentists.
