Dental Fillings in Arlington, Virginia

Common, versatile, and affordable dental procedures in Arlington, Virginia

Dental fillings are common, affordable, dental procedures used to restore teeth.

A filling is used when a dentist needs to restore tooth structure commonly caused by fractures or decay. Dental fillings are also used to restore decayed cracked, or chipped teeth, improve the appearance of stained teeth, change the shape of teeth, or close spaces between gapped teeth.

Before a filling is placed; cracks, decay and all old defective restorative materials (usually amalgam, gold, ceramic or old composite) are completely removed. Dental composite (white filling material) is placed over a bonding agent, which bonds composite to tooth structure.

Amalgam / Metal Fillings

For many years, amalgam/metal fillings were the only choice. As those fillings wear down, we can now replace them with a new colored composite filling. These fillings match the color of your teeth for more natural look and feel.

  • I've been seeing Dr. Goldstein as a patient for about a year now. I've had an amazing experience so far. He is extremely responsive to emails, always sees me on time and has great bedside manner. I've been very impressed with him as a dentist and would recommend him to anyone.
