Will the filling material be metal?
When are dental fillings necessary?
Dental fillings are necessary when a cavity is present and needs to be treated. Fillings are also necessary to repair damaged teeth, such as teeth that have been chipped or cracked. In some cases, dental fillings may be recommended for preventive purposes. For example, a dentist may recommend a filling to seal a deep groove or fissure in a tooth to prevent decay from developing.
How are dental fillings done?
Remove the decay and bond the composite to replace the missing tooth structure.
Which dental fillings are best?
Composite fillings are more esthetic. Amalgam fillings are strong materials but are less esthetic and can expand and cause cracks. Also, there are environmental concerns regarding the use of mercury which is a component of amalgam. Hence we only use composite fillings.
Are dental fillings safe?
Yes, dental fillings are safe for most people. All types of dental fillings have been approved by the FDA. Our Dentists do only composite fillings and no amalgam fillings to avoid any mercury toxicity.
How much are dental fillings without insurance?
The cost of a filling depends on how many surfaces of the tooth need to be filled. Check our specials and take advantage of the low price.
Can dental fillings fall out?
Yes. typically when there is decay around a filling. Also, if you are a heavy bruxer, anterior fillings are more likely to come out.
Do dental fillings need to be replaced?
Depends. Sometimes bacteria can get around the filling causing decay. Fillings can crack or wear down and may need to be replaced.
Why do dental fillings hurt?
The filling can be high in occlusion causing slight trauma to the ligaments surrounding the tooth. When removing decay, it can cause slight inflammation to the nerves within a tooth that normally recedes on its own.
When can I eat after getting a dental filling?
Immediately but must be careful because you are still numb and can possibly bite your cheek.
How come I may have sensitivity after getting a new filling?
Shrinkage of the composite material once it hardens putting stress on the natural tooth structure. large cavities that are close to the nerve.
