Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry
Dental Fillings

When a tooth's structure has been compromised by decay (cavity), a crack in the enamel, or a chip, a filling is required to prevent further damage. Often, these areas have gone undetected by the patient until the dentist finds them in a routine check up.

We use a hand-held laser to diagnose cavities at any stage of development. This allows for pain-free, highly-accurate and fast diagnosis.

Dr. Hanchett offers alternatives in dental fillings that provide you with functional, natural-looking results. We use both tooth-colored mercury-free filling materials and amalgam restorations.


The decayed area of your tooth will be gently removed and replaced with filling material. The tooth will then be polished and checked for proper occlusion (fit between the upper and lower teeth).
