What Are Dental Fillings and What Do They Do?
We use dental fillings to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay. The first step in the process is for Dr. Savabi and his team to carefully remove the decayed portion of the tooth. Once we clean the cavity out, we place the filling material in the hole. We gently and carefully shape the material to match the contours of the tooth. The material is then allowed to harden. The final step is to polish the filling to blend in with the rest of the tooth.
Many different types of filling materials are available, and we can help you choose the best option for your needs. Fillings can last for many years, but they may eventually need to be replaced due to wear or damage. With proper care, your fillings can help you keep your smile healthy and bright for a long time.
The Benefits of Dental Fillings
There are many benefits to getting dental fillings, including:
- Relief from tooth pain
- Prevention of further decay
- Restoration of chewing function
- Improvement in the appearance of your smile
- Protection of damaged teeth from further damage
Types of Dental Fillings
The filling you receive will depend on the tooth’s location, the cavity’s size, your personal preferences, and other factors. Fillings are made from either amalgam (“silver fillings”) or composite materials (“white fillings”).
- Metal fillings are strong and durable, but they are also noticeable and can cause staining of the tooth over time.
- Composite fillings are made of resin and actually bond to your teeth. They are tooth-colored, and we can match them to the exact shade of your tooth. They have the benefit of being able to flex with your tooth as it absorbs pressures during biting and chewing.
How to Get Dental Fillings
If you think you may need a filling, the first step is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Savabi. He will examine your tooth and take X-rays to determine the extent of the damage. He will then discuss your treatment options with you and help you choose the best type of filling for your needs.
Dental Filling Aftercare
Once we place your filling, it is essential to take care of it to ensure that it lasts for many years. Avoid chewing hard foods or ice on the tooth, and brush and floss carefully to avoid damaging the filling. It is also important to see Dr. Savabi for regular checkups so that he can check the condition of your filling and make sure that the tooth is healthy.
How Much Do Dental Fillings Cost?
The cost of dental fillings will vary depending on the filling you choose and the extent of the damage. Dr. Savabi will work with you to find a treatment option that fits your needs and budget and will provide helpful up-front cost estimates.
