What are the benefits of tooth-colored dental fillings?

  Unlike traditional silver fillings, tooth-colored fillings are made of composite resin material that is designed to closely match the natural color of the teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing restoration. Composite fillings also bond directly to the tooth structure, preserving more enamel. Tooth-colored fillings are mercury-free as well, making them a safer and more biocompatible option for dental restorations. Many patients and dental professionals prefer composite over amalgam, so we are happy to offer composite dental fillings.

How long do composite dental fillings last?

On average, composite fillings can last between five to ten years or more before requiring replacement. The lifespan of composite fillings varies depending on factors such as the size and location of the filling, oral hygiene habits, and lifestyle factors like diet and teeth grinding. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential for monitoring the condition of dental fillings and ensuring their longevity. During these visits, our team evaluates the integrity of the patient’s dental restorations and addresses any signs of wear or deterioration to prevent further damage and help them maintain optimal oral health.

Do dental fillings hurt?

Sometimes patients are tempted to put off restorative services like dental fillings out of fear that the treatment will be painful. Our team prioritizes patient comfort and utilizes local anesthesia to help block out pain and ensure a comfortable experience during filling appointments. While some patients may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity during the numbing process or minor pressure during the filling placement, any discomfort should be minimal and temporary. We also offer dental sedation, which can make restorative treatments even more comfortable and relaxed, especially for anxious patients.
