Fillings are typically done in one visit. Your dentist will remove any decay or fractures while the tooth is numb. Before the new infill is installed, the area will be thoroughly cleaned and prepared. If the decay is close to the tooth's nerve, a specific medicine will be used to provide additional protection.
The filling will then be precisely inserted, contoured, and polished, restoring the shape and function of your tooth. When composite fillings are first done, you may suffer sensitivity to warmth and cold, but this will fade quickly as your tooth adjusts to the new filling.
After your treatment, you will be given care instructions. Your new fillings will last longer if you practice good oral care, eat well, and visit the dentist regularly.
Dental amalgam is a dental filling used to treat cavities caused by tooth decay. Dental amalgam is a metal mixture of liquid (elemental) mercury and powdered silver. Dental amalgams are long-lasting and cost-effective, used for over a century.
A composite (tooth-colored) filling is an aesthetically pleasing alternative to silver fillings. However, composite fillings are more delicate and may need to be replaced at some point. They will provide you with a gorgeous smile for many years with proper care.
Dental porcelain and ceramics make ceramic fillings of the highest quality. These tooth-colored fillings are the most stain- and wear-resistant alternative in the tooth-colored fillings category, providing durable, appealing, and long-lasting results.
It's critical to remember the following immediately following the insertion of a new filling:
When the anesthetic wears off:
You may have a period of persistent numbness following your dental visit. Within an hour or two, the normal sensation should return.
However, until the anesthetic wears off entirely, it's critical to avoid accidentally biting or harming your lips, cheeks, gums, or tongue. When eating, drinking hot liquids, or smoking, be cautious.
It's normal for a tooth to feel a bit sensitive after a filling has been placed. When you eat cold or hot meals and beverages, you may feel a twinge. Within a few days, the sensitivity should go away on its own.
Our practice uses the most up-to-date generations of solid and long-lasting filler materials. Your new filling should survive for many years with proper oral hygiene and routine care.
Even the best fillings may need to be replaced, or extra dental work may be required in cases of severe tooth decay or harm to the underlying tooth.
When a tooth's structural integrity is compromised by dental decay, a filling rebuilds its natural structure and restores its strength and function.
Because tooth decay is one of the most common dental issues afflicting both children and adults worldwide, filling treatments are performed daily.

I was recommended by a co-worker and I’m so happy I listened. I called them and they had me come in the same day to check out my wisdom teeth that were hurting me. The whole staff is very friendly & welcoming. I’ll definitely be coming back even after my wisdom teeth are pulled.
