Dr. Jose Lopez and the team at JL Family and Cosmetic Dentistry provides dental fillings in Boulder, CO to treat cavities. During the procedure, Dr. Lopez will first numb the affected tooth and surrounding tissues. Then he will remove the damaged or decayed part of the tooth. Finally, a dental filling is used to fill the area back in. Fillings can also be used to fix cracked or broken teeth or teeth that have been worn down.
