Do You Need A Dental Filling?

The early signs of tooth decay can be easy to miss. Tiny cavities form when acid from foods and bacteria eat away at the tooth enamel. As cavities grow, you may not be able to remove food as a food trap has formed. Even if you brush and floss carefully, you might not be able to remove them all. Cavities are easier to fix when they are small.

In addition to proper oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing regularly, you should have a professional dental cleaning and examination at least once a year. Leaving cavities untreated increases the risk of toothache, infection, and tooth loss. Schedule an appointment with your dentist if you:

  • have not seen the dentist in over a year
  • do not have recent dental X-rays
  • have tooth pain or sensitivity
  • notice any discoloration on the surface of a tooth

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Many patients come to us with feelings of anxiety not only about the dental filling procedure but also about their appearance. Will people see the filling when they talk or smile? Using the latest materials such as ceramics and composite resins, we can match the filling material to the color of your natural teeth.

Tooth-Filling Process

Before the procedure, the dentist will reconfirm your medical history, including any allergies that might affect your treatment. The dentist will numb the area with a local anesthetic. They will remove the decayed part of the tooth and prepare it for the filling. If you begin to feel discomfort or anxiety, we stop the procedure and make sure that you are comfortable. The dentist will then apply the filling material to the tooth and allow it to harden. Once it does, your tooth will be good as new.
