Restore tooth structure, restore your health.
Whether you have a nail-biting habit that wears down your teeth, a painful cavity behind one of your canines, or a chipped tooth from an accident, we’re here to help. Plus, we offer a 5-year warranty on our dental fillings.
When is a dental filling necessary?
The tell-tale signs of tooth decay—pain or sensitivity around the affected area—alerts you and your dentist to a cavity, a cracked tooth, or over-worn teeth. To diagnose a cavity, we’ll perform a series of tests, including (but not limited to):
- Visual assessment
These tests will lead to a diagnosis and treatment plan. For very small cavities, we may simply recommend a wait-and-see approach. If the cavity is large and painful or located in a hard-to-reach area, a filling is often recommended.
Treating a cavity with a filling involves removing decayed tooth structure, followed by a cavity filling that “fills” the hole in your teeth, protecting your tooth from further decay.
What kind of fillings are there?
- NComposite fillings are made with composite resin, easily match teeth color, and last about three to 10 years.
- NPorcelain fillings look the most like natural teeth, are resistant to staining, and last 15 to 20 years.
What to expect when you get a dental filling
1. Your dentist will numb the area with local anesthesia. Once past this quick injection, you won’t feel a thing!
2. We’ll clean out the tooth cavity or old filling, removing all decayed tooth structure before proceeding.
