Dental Fillings

When minor damage occurs in the enamel of the tooth, either due to decay or physical trauma, one fix that our dentists, Dr. Sean Cook and Dr. Brian Mooney, might suggest is a dental filling. Effectively patching the missing piece of tooth and shielding it from further damage, a dental filling is a common and beneficial treatment that our team performs often. If you are in need of a dental filling in Mesa, Arizona, please call Canyon Rim Dental today at 480-962-1500 to learn more and schedule your next appointment with us.


A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if a tooth has been damaged by decay (for example, if it has a cavity), or if a tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function, and to return your smile to good health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite fillings.

The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentists will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth, then clean it to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the area with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened for a lasting restoration.

If one of your teeth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and to schedule your next appointment with our team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
