Cosmetic Fillings Process
First, our dentist will administer local anesthesia to numb the tooth. Once your tooth is properly numb, our dentist will remove the decayed tooth matter before filling the hole with composite resin.
It will take a few hours for the numbness to subside. However, you’ll be able to return to work or school after your appointment. Best of all, no one will be able to see your white fillings.
White fillings blend in with natural tooth enamel so you don’t have to feel self-conscious about metal on your teeth. Many of our patients appreciate that composite fillings can go unnoticed by family, friends, and coworkers. Composite fillings are especially useful for those teeth that show when you smile and talk.
Cosmetic Fillings FAQ
Our dentists use composite resin fillings which are made to match the color of your natural enamel. There is no metal involved unlikeand you or others will not be able to visually tell you’ve received a filling.
If you noticed cracks or worn areas on your fillings, please see one of our dentists as soon as you are able to have it replaced. Continuing to chew with a damaged filling can potentially cause the tooth to crack and require additional restorative care.
