Dental Fillings in Gulfport

A cavity can happen to anyone. Our dentist, Walter Guillot, DMD, specializes in dental restorations including fillings in Gulfport. Here, you’ll find a family-friendly office, and we welcome your entire family to visit us for all of your dental needs.

Fillings are among the most common dental procedures. The CDC recently reported that more than 90% of adults had a cavity at some point in their lives. With advancements in technology and anesthesia, filling a cavity is generally painless. The materials used for fillings are both long-lasting and can be colored to match your teeth.

To fill a cavity, Dr. Guillot uses both amalgam and composite fillings.

Amalgam fillings have a long history in treating cavities. They are made from a blend of metals set in your teeth that create a strong and durable surface. Their durability can withstand the high pressure of chewing on the back molars. Metal fillings are a more affordable option for many patients.

Composite fillings are made using a mix of plastic and ceramics. Once hardened, they offer strength and protection to the tooth along with a polished finish that complements your smile.

Signs That You May Have a Cavity

  • Pain or tenderness when chewing
  • Darkened areas on your teeth
  • Frequent toothaches
  • Sensitivity to cold foods

Are fillings noticeable?

They don’t have to be! A big advantage of composite fillings is that they can be customized so that its final color looks just like your other teeth. They look completely natural.

I just had a filling fall out. What should I do?

If you have lost a filling, call us right away to schedule treatment. Replacing the filling right away is key in protecting that tooth from further damage. If you are in pain, we offer some same-day emergency appointments.

Dr. Guillot has been our dentist for years. He is always very professional and treats you with such dignity. His staff is very efficient and very accommodating. I appreciate them being so polite.

Awesome experience! Kind of sad that I have to wait 6 months to go back. The staff is incredibly friendly, the office is beautiful and it was an overall great experience. Quick, easy and painless! Emily is a wonderful hygienist! I've already recommended this practice to a friend who just moved to the area. Thank you!
