What Is A Dental Filling?

A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.

Because composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.


Procedure

Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, your dentist will remove decay as necessary. The space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed.

If the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication will be applied for added protection.

The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function. It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when composite fillings are first placed, however this will subside shortly after your tooth acclimates to the new filling.You will be given care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment.

Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.

What People Are Saying See how our patients love us!

This dentist office was awesome! I made an appointment for my husband because he was having a lot of pain and they were able schedule him the very next day. My husband usually hates getting dental work, but had a great experience!

WOW!! How refreshing to see a dentist and have a thorough evaluation to judge the necessity of my treatment before any procedure is recommended instead of what my insurance and wallet will cover!! He actually talked to me about different options and answered my questions without making me feel dental dumb. If you are seeing any other dentist I feel bad for you. This dentist is a rare gem!!!

H W. on Yelp

After chipping my tooth today while at work, I called and was offered a spot immediately. It was nearly my lunch time so I headed right to the office. My tooth was fixed and I was right back to work. Everyone was really friendly, which is typical for this office. I couldn't have had a better experience. Thanks so much!
