Dental Fillings An Overview

Dental fillings are used to address tooth decay and help support a healthy smile. Dental fillings are one of the most commonly used general dental treatments. Most patients will receive a dental filling at some point in their life. Ceramic dental fillings are highly durable and effective at sealing out future decay.

Larger cavities or decay in the deep grooves of the teeth may require a more substantial treatment may be required. We offer inlay or onlays for the treatment of advanced tooth decay. Dr. Datta can use CEREC digital technology to design and fit your inlay or onlay in a single visit to our Reston, VA dentist office.
